DTBook is an acronym for DAISY Digital Talking Book or DAISY XML file. Digital Accessible Information System (DAISY) is a technical standard for digital audio books, periodicals, and computerised text. DAISY is designed to be a complete audio substitute for print material and is specifically designed for use by people with “print disabilities,” including blindness, impaired vision, and dyslexia. A DTBook should enable its readers to listen as well as navigate easily through its content.

We at DataNZ convert all types of documents into XML.doc files which are then used in the production of DTBooks as per the requirements of our clients. We follow the DTBook-2005-3.dtd, the latest version in our DTBook DTD conforming to DAISY Consortium Standards. The end product can be read and listened on multiple devices such as mobile phones, multimedia devices, PC with CD drives etc.
