I haven't tried the Don Johnston offering but I have been using the DAISY Pipeline to convert DAISY to EPUB for quite some time now.

I get the best results with DTBook to XHTML and then XHTML to EPUB this work-flow seems to retain the structural markup of the DAISY XML better than the other transforms.

The best part is it's free!

Please can I ask if anyone has tried Don Johnston's latest offering in the
altformat market? According to PRWeb "The DAISYtoEPUB software is the
first and only tool that converts DAISY 3 (Digital Accessible Information
System) electronic files into EPUB, the preferred standard format for
mainstream eBook readers like the iPad, Nook, Sony Reader, Android
devices, and computer-based programs."

So sorry I cannot make ATIA but will help out at CSUN if they accept any
of my talks! I would have loved to have found a mythical funder to make it
to Seattle for your sessions Ron!

Best wishes E.A.
