Daisy & Accessibility Services

“Content accessibility” is our “Potent Responsibility”!

DAISY (the Digital Accessible Information System) is the emerging media compliance norm to enable complete accessibility of digital text, audio and images for people with print disabilities, including blindness, defective vision and dyslexia. It is a new file layout based on an ANSI NISO standard and the manuscript portions of it are referred to as DTBook, an XML standard systematized by DAISY Consortium and the Library of Congress’ National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS). NIMAS (National Instructional Materials Accessibility Standard) a technical standard used by publishers to develop the source XML files which in turn may be used to develop other formats like DAISY, Braille, Digital Talking Books (DTB) for readers with special needs.

Our Daisy & Accessibility services are currently focused on the following disciplines:

  • Accessible PDF / EPUB / XML / HTML
  • Daisy Talking Books
  • PDF, RTF, Word, Indesign, Quark etc. to XML-based NIMAS / CenDoc files
  • Alternate Texts for all Images
