DAISY Projects

All DAISY projects are open source.

Featured Projects

Tobi is an authoring tool for DAISY and EPUB 3 Talking Books, geared towards re-purposing published material. 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. Tobi uses the Diagrammar framework as a basis for allowing users to add long descriptions and other image alternatives to a file.

More information can be found on the Tobi project page.


Obi is an easy to use accessible 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 a 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 project. Details are on the DAISY Pipeline 2 Project page.
