Frequently Asked Questions - General Questions about the DAISY Pipeline
The DAISY Pipeline is a suite of tools designed to meet the varied and increasing production needs of the DAISY community by providing a cross-platform, customizable and extensible framework for document- and DTB-related transformations. It supports the migration of digital content to various formats efficiently and economically, facilitating both production and distribution of DAISY DTBs.
The DAISY Pipeline is primarily addressed at organizations and companies involved in DAISY production. However, its use is not restricted to the DAISY membership.
The Pipeline is a collaborative project hosted by the DAISY Consortium, with numerous organizations participating and contributing to the development. Most contributions are open source, and reside at the DAISY Pipeline development site.
The DAISY Pipeline uses cross platform technology and is currently available for Windows (98, Me, XP), Mac OS X (PPC or Intel), and Linux.
Of course! The DAISY Pipeline is an open source collaborative software development project and much functionality is still needed. If you would like to join the DAISY open source community and contribute to the development of the Pipeline, please contact Markus Gylling, DAISY International Technical Development Coordinator, using the Contact Us Form on the DAISY Web site.
