DAISY Projects

All DAISY projects are open source.

Featured Projects


Tobi is an authoring tool geared towards re-purposing published material. For example, it can be used to add audio narration to a text-only document, to synchronize a podcast with a structured script, or to review and improve an existing Digital Talking Book publication. To create text from scratch, we recommend popular editors such as Microsoft Word or Open Office, which can both produce DTBook markup thanks to their respective Save as DAISY add-ins.

More information can be found on the Tobi project page.

Obi is a tool for producing digital talking books (DTBs) conforming to DAISY 3 (officially, the ANSI/NISO Z39.86), DAISY 2.02 and EPUB 3 standards.

The DAISY Pipeline 2 is an ongoing project to develop a next generation framework for automated production of accessible materials for people with print disabilities. It is the follow-up and total redesign of the original DAISY Pipeline 1 project.


Details are available on the DAISY Pipeline 2 Project page.
