"Save as DAISY" add-in for Microsoft Office Word incorporates a "Lite" version of the DAISY Pipeline. You can select to generate the DAISY XML for further processing, or you can create a fully conforming DAISY file set with full navigation and full text synchronized with audio. The audio is generated by the default text-to-speech (TTS) engine on your Windows computer.

The download is available for both 32-bit and 64-bit Office. You may also want to read a Microsoft article on the topic of choosing a 32-bit or 64-bit Office.
