When learning alone is not enough
Mystic Access realizes that sometimes the act of learning your asistive technology is not enough. We know that you may also be in need of discovering self-empowerment for your journey. That’s why we include our inspiring “Encouragement Corner” and “Now It’s Your Turn” sections. These allow you to build self-confidence and self-motivation, and become more proactive in the use of your assistive technology. We want you to enjoy your learning adventure, and these portions of the tutorial will hopefully make doing so easier and more fun.
Listen in DAISY or MP3 formats
The tutorial may be downloaded in two formats. The first is as a fully-navigable DAISY audio book. This DAISY version of the tutorial can be played in the $VRDB folder of your Stream, or in any other device or software that can play DAISY files. You may also download the tutorial as a series of MP3 files, and play it on any device that supports MP3 playback. Please note that if using the MP3 version of the tutorial, there will be far less navigation available to you as you move through the tutorial.
