Library Getting Started

Welcome to the I.R.T.I. Talking Document Library where you can download and enjoy audio books, product manuals and tutorials, News Letters and more using our revolutionary audio book conversion tool - eClipseWater and reading tool - eClipseReader.

Here’s How It Works

The files available for download in IRTI's accessible media library are called DTB-DNATM and DTB-RDNATM ,  which are bi-products of eClipseWriter's DAISY book production process.   These tiny encrypted files can contain the text, graphics and audio included in a  book combined into a single transport file capable of transforming into over 30 formats of accessible media rendered with eClipseWater Professional. DTB-DNA and DTB-RDNA files can be downloaded using your favorite web browser, then opened with eClipseWater and converted into your choice of supported accessible media formats readable on a wide range of software and hardware devices.

Visitors to our web site may also access IRTI's document Library using eClipseReader's built-in Web Browser which is customize to interact with eClipseWater automating the download, conversion and reading process.   NOTE: When accessing the library in this manner both eClipseReader and eClipseWater must be installed on your computer.

eClipseReader and eClipseWater working in unison enable DAISY documents to magically appear on your PC ready to read and study by simply clicking on a web link.  You may save the daisy books on your PC, convert them to audio formats for portable playback or save them to eClipseReader's books library list.   Once saved in your books list eClipseReader will remember where they are anywhere on the internet or your local storage device making them easy to find for later review.

Screen Reader Compatibility

eClipseReader and eClipseWater include a built-in screen reader and a user interface designed for both Blind and sighted users.  Scripts and Set Files are available via download for Window-Eyes and JAWS (other screen readers soon to be supported) providing speech and Braille Display access when used with eClipseReader's Web Browser.   There is no need to learn new procedures and Hot-keys to surf the Web.   JAWS scripts and Window-Eyes set files enable eClipseReader's built-in screen reader, your favorite personal screen reader and DAISY book reading voices to become seamlessly integrated.  eClipseReader provides screen reading functions and feedback for book reading, study tools, quick links to IRTI's support Library and managing your favorite on-line library links, while your screen reader remains the primary tool to enabling accessible On-line Web Access.
