Subject: Re: Request for Information]

Hi Mary.
I work with the Daisy Consortium (and the office accessibility SC).
I've developed a suite of transforms from ODF to daisy text files.
these have not had wide testing yet, but have had some exposure.
Ask and I'll forward it.

For Michael, I'd point out http://daisymfc.sourceforge.net/
which has been developed by Daisy members, which converts
Daisy text files into full daisy books using synthetic speech.

Mary, Michael. Could this transform be considered for
a 'save as' transform in ODF?
If so, what licence does it need please? Full GPL?
