Re: NVDA DAISY structure error

Jonathan COHN

EPUB3 is a merging of Daisy and epub. The primary difference is that daisy was distributed as a directory and epub as a zip compressed directory. EPUB also has a mime file that I have never seen in daisy  books, but I think it is fairly standard.

Hi Curtis,


I might take you up on that!  Or can I ask what software you use please?  I've been looking for daisy software to try to fix this.  The Daisy Consortium only push ePub now and have abandoned DAISY.


So, I guess the other question is what format does everyone read audio books in?  I never even knew that ePub was an audio format until recently, but should I be looking at converting the material to ePub 3 instead?  (We already supply ePub in the electronic text but that is just a text based book, without audio).

If you want, I can do all of this, for I have the software I use to
create books with, give me a link and I can probably fix it in less than
an hour of work or so, easy peezy. I do this every day so it is no great
shakes for me.
