A quick introduction to DAISY, a technology that promises to revolutionize the reading experience for people who have print disabilities like blindness or dyslexia.
DAISY (Digital Accessible Information SYstem) XML is a universal standard format for reading and publishing digital talking books, and allows for new ways to deliver information quickly and efficiently using high quality synthetic speech or human voice.
Microsoft, The DAISY Consortium (www.daisy.org) and Sonata Software have worked together to build a "Save as DAISY XML" add-in for Microsoft Office Word.
This free, downloadable XML-based add-in, available at http://sourceforge.net/projects/openx..., makes it possible for Microsoft Office Word (including XP, 2003 and 2007) users to convert Open XML-based content into DAISY XML.
