[Athen] FW: Microsoft Word files to serve as talking books

Good afternoon, as I understand it what this plugin will provide is
XMLDocBook conformant content. The quality of this XML content will be
dependent on the quality of the structure of the document that is "Saved as
DAISY". The second issue is when will this be available and what will the
quality of it be as an opensource endeavor. You are still going to need
something to turn it into "readable" DAISY content.

I was on a different track this year with my workshops and lectures, so
I missed his. I would love to think this could work, it would be a
wonderful alternative to all the hand-coding that is required with DAISY
work these days. I keep looking for quick easy solutions.
