Microsoft, DAISY To Assist People With Sight Problems
· 1

Microsoft has introduced a new software add-in to assist those who are blind or partially sighted with turning printed Word documents into audio files.

The "Save as DAISY XML" add-in enables text files to be converted into audio files.  DAISY is an acronym for Digital Accessible Information System. The add-in was developed by Microsoft, Sonata Software, and the DAISY Consortium as an open source project.
