There several difficulties to overcome when libraries for the blind switch over to digitally producing and distributing the next generation of talking books. However, fading support from the main stream industries for analogue recording, makes such a switch inevitable. Moreover, the digital technologies, when applied correctly, allow for a much better accessibility of the recorded information. An international group of leading libraries for the blind, called the Daisy Consortium, has developed a standard that is a strong candidate for the next generation of talking book. Especially the convergence between the daisy standard and the open e-book standard is an important step forward. A professional tool for Daisy productions and the coming Daisy playback software (as freeware) are further important steps forward. Producers should now start recording and the distributing within the daisy standard, thus establishing a digital talking book library that is truly international.
