From the Colchester Gazette to the Daily Telegraph, or the Dallas Morning News to the New York Times!

Hundreds of local and national newspapers are now fully accessible to blind and partially sighted people enjoying the latest update to Dolphin Guide.

No matter what your eyesight, you can now comfortably read the same newspapers at the same time as everyone else. The Newspapers and Magazines menu, new in Dolphin Guide 9.04, provides convenient access to favourite broadsheets, tabloids and a wide selection of popular magazines. Instead of straining to see smudged newsprint, text is enlarged on screen and is spoken with natural sounding voices on speakers or headphones. Plus, you can read anywhere by following Dolphin Guide's clear instructions to transfer titles to portable DAISY players, including the Humanware VictorReader Stream.
