In Denmark, digitization has led to the decline of the “talking newspaper” compact disc (CD) mailing system, resulting in an information gap for the visually impaired. Sponsored by the Danish Association of the Blind (DAB), this report aims to recommend approaches for the timely distribution of DAISY formatted current information to the visually impaired. By communicating with various organizations and conducting a device evaluation with the visually impaired themselves, we recommended a multi-system approach with calling, assistive technology (AT), and smartphone compatibility, an active teaching and awareness program, and a collaboration between organizations for distributing current information effectively to the visually impaired.
