Odt2DAISY - create DAISY Digital Talking Books with OpenOffice.org!

Vincent Spiewak has finished his OpenOffice.org extension for converting ODF text documents to DAISY Digital Talking Books - you can find the press release here.

The extension not only creates XML content, but also can make use of different text to speech engines, so you will have fully featured talking books.

I recommend this extension for everybody who wants to create DAISY books. Binaries and source files are available on sourceforge, the license is LGPL 3.

If you never heard of DAISY before, you might want to look at the screen casts which will show you how it works.

Thank you very much for this great OpenOffice.org extension!

Some facts about the development of ODF

I just stumbled over a quite new blog entry from my colleague Erwin - a really good one, I think!

It clarifies some things about the development process of ODF.

Read it, and I am sure after that you will also ask yourself why Microsoft started it's own XML document format, instead of simply participating in the development of ODF...
