DAISY Pipeline: From DAISY 2.02 to DAISY 3
DTB forward migrator is the original ‘raison d'être’ of the DAISY Pipeline: to guarantee that all DAISY books produced in one version of the DAISY Standard can be migrated to a later version of itself.
Input required: a valid(!) DAISY 2.02 Book
Ctrl + N (or click: New Job Wizard)
choose=>Modify and Improve=>DAISY XML (DTBook)=>DTB Forward Migrator
Hit ‘Next’ and browse for the path to your *.ncc Input File and select a path for your new (migrated) DTBook *.xml file.
There are Optional Parameters:
Input DTB Type : This is set by default as ‘Auto detect’ and can be left that way
Identifier : If nothing is entered here the identifier from the original DAISY 2.02 book will be used. But since it is not really a good idea to have books with identical identifiers in your library, you might want to change this. Most probably the library section of your organisation will provide an identifier.
Add NCX navLabel audio : navLabel is something only DAISY 3 books have, so it has to be added. The title and all headings in a DAISY 2.02 book should consist of one uninterupted section of audio, so when navigating through a book the user hears the name of that heading. In DAISY 3 books these are explicitly navigable. Checking this box will ensure that.
Audio clip length : This sets the length of audio for the navLabels, it therefore only makes sense to specify a value for this parameter, if the "Add NCX navLabel audio" check box is checked.
Transfer NCC metadata : By checking this you can import all the Meta Data from the 2.02 original, which might not be a good idea since you are creating a different and new book. If left unchecked nothing will be imported
Optional CSS : Your organisation might have a custom look to its books for which a CascadingStyleSheet (CSS) would have been created. Here you can import that style sheet.
Optional Resource File : The Resource File is again something not found in DAISY 2.02 books. It gives a lot more navigational possibilities to a DAISY 3 book. If no resource file is specified, no such file will be available in the resulting talking book.
