August 19, 2014 – Pyxima® and Pratsam® start a partnership enabling Finnish reading impaired persons to read DAISY books on their handhelds. As official reseller of the Online Daisy™ audio book reading app in Finland, Pratsam will release a dedicated app allowing readers to gain barrier-free access to talking newspapers and audiobooks.

“With this partnership we are writing a new chapter in the international development of the Online Daisy apps” says Stephan Engelen, CEO of Pyxima. “Today, with more than 35.000 active users, we are already reaching an important part of Scandinavian visually impaired persons. This partnership will allow us to extend this user group to the Finnish market as well”.
