and for local communities
We are continuously developing PLEXTALK, a digital talking book player for the purpose of assisting with employment support and providing a pleasant reading environment for the visually impaired. For roughly 25 years, Shinano Kenshi has also put an effort into unique business activities. The DAISY Consortium, which manages and operates the international standard for digital audiobooks, DAISY (Digital Accessible Information System), awarded the title of “DAISY Lifetime Honorary Friend” for the first time in 2005 to the 4th generation president, Hachiro Kaneko. This award was based on the management decision to make Shinano’s basic technology public, allowing all companies to access it.
