The DSIDTB Project
DSIDTB stands for DAISY Software Initiative for Digital Talking Books.
The DAISY Consortium was formed in May, 1996 by talking-book libraries to lead the worldwide transition from analogue to Digital Talking Books. DAISY denotes the Digital Accessible Information SYstem. Further information is available on the web site http://www.daisy.org.
The DSIDTB Project is an Open Source initiative of the DAISY Consortium to develop tools and utilities related to the DAISY Standards.
There are currently two co-existing DAISY standards. Both describe consistent ways to produce and play Digital Talking Books (DTB). Both support from text-only to audio-only through full synchronization of text and audio.
DSIDTB targets these two standards and aims at providing tools and utilities for both of them.
