    The future road map of the Plextalk products is the evaluation from CD media to a network delivery.
    We also think that todays audio delivery will evoluate to a Multi media environment for the visual impaired community (Daisy 2.02 to Daisy 3.0)

    1. 1. 1 Trend of DAISY playback device in the world Shinano Kenshi
    2. 2. 2 DAISY and PLEXTALK • “During the early development of the DAISY Consortium in the mid 1990's, Plextor Corp. and its parent company, Shinano Kenshi Co., Ltd., was among the early supporters. Plextor products have always had an excellent reputation for being the highest quality products on the market. The early founders of the DAISY Consortium welcomed Plextor's knowledgeable participation in DAISY developments. Without this early support, we would not be where we are today. The DAISY Consortium and the millions of blind and print- disabled people we serve will be forever indebted to Shinano Kenshi for their involvement.” – DAISY Consortium website (http://www.daisy.org/policy/patent.html) http://www.daisy.org/stories/shinano-kenshi.shtml Please also see ‘Your Story’ – DAISY Consortium
