  • 1. DAISY Consortium Open Source Projects A greater collaboration for better production tools Romain Deltour < rdeltour(at)gmail.com > Find out more: daisy.org/daisy-projects
  • 2. Outline
    • General Context
    • DAISY Consortium Strategy
    • Automated Authoring: The Pipeline Project
    • Interactive Authoring: Obi and Tobi
  • 3. An increasing demand for accessible content
    • Publishers and organizations have to provide accessible content:
    • to a wide range of user groups
    • through various distribution channels
    • to an increasing variety of devices
    • in several output formats

    • upcoming DAISY 4 distribution format
    • EPUB
    • Large print
    • Braille
  • 5. Requirements for production tools
    • Efficiency:
    • produce many documents in a short time
    • Low cost
    • Easy to develop and easy to maintain
    • Versatility:
    • produce several formats, integrate in heterogeneous systems
  • 6. DAISY Membership World Map with DAISY member organization locations
  • 7. Collaborative Projects
    • A strong international collaboration allows to:
    • lower the development cost
    • increase software quality
    • answer the heterogeneous community needs
    • leverage the available skills and resources
  • 8. Strategy for Software Developments
    • Open Source projects
    • Member organizations’ contributions
    • Permissive licensing: allows both non-profit and commercial reuse
    • Vendor neutral approach: use of standards, cross-platform software
  • 9. A Comprehensive Tool Suite
    • Interactive Authoring: Obi, Tobi
    • Automated Authoring: Pipeline
    • Validation: ZedVal, Pipeline
    • Player: AMIS
  • 10. Objectives of the DAISY Pipeline
    • fully automated processing
    • modular pipelined conversions
    • support a wide range of input and output formats
    • promote the &quot;single source master&quot; approach
    • extensible and customizable
  • 11. Pipeline 1 : An Established Solution
    • Project launched in 2005
    • Widely used in the DAISY Community
    • Many third party contributions
    • Successfully integrated in larger applications
    • (e. g. “Save as DAISY”)
  • 12. Pipeline 2 : The New Generation
    • Fundamental redesign towards an
    • enterprise-grade solution
    • Focus on platform neutral standards
    • (W3C Xproc, XSLT,…)
    • Improve the interoperability with the mainstream
    • A first reference implementation of DAISY 4
    • Better support for EPUB
    • Progressively increased functionality
    • (Braille, TTS production)
  • 13. Pipeline 2 : General Approach
    • Phase 1 (May 2010 to September 2011): Core redesign and support for DAISY 4 Authoring and Interchange
    • Phase 2 (September 2011 to September 2013): Extended functionality and deployment options
    • Dedicated working groups for specific tasks
    • Braille production
    • TTS-based production
    • Several deployment options
    • Command line tool
    • Web Service API
    • Web Application
    • Lightweight UI
  • 14. Obi : An Audio Production Tool
    • Production of audio-only books
    • Easy to use, with a minimal amount of training
    • Fully accessible Windows application
    • Support for internationalization
    • Photo: DAISY Production - Obi user
  • 15. Tobi : A Modular Production Tool
    • Production tool for accessible multimedia formats (DAISY 3)
    • Intuitive workflow for synchronized audio recording and editing
    • Support import of DTBook and EPUB
    • More functionality can be provided through plug-ins
    • Fully accessible Windows application
