[AI] Creation of daisy books made easy

Hello Dipendra

The news seems to be good.

However, after installing the required software, when I tried to save a document created in word 2003 as daisy, it gave an error as: "save the document in word 2007 format".
Now, while installing, I came to know that software supports word xp and 2003 as well!

Nextly, I am curious to know that even after one successfully saves a word document as daisy file, would it become a full fledged daisy book with voice, or it would be converted into daisy compatible format which has to be created into a daisy book by following certain procedures or by having it mechanically read?

Excuse my ignorance.
