I know that some of you have been asking for the Daisy add-in for Word 2010 so thought this announcement about the beta would be of interest. There is also a PowerPoint add-in beta for captioning.


The blog announcement is condensed below.

Cheers, Karen

Do you know anyone with hearing, sight, or reading disabilities? The public beta starts today for two add-ins that help make Office documents more accessible: STAMP and DAISY:

STAMP, the Subtitling Add-In for Microsoft PowerPoint, lets you add closed captions to the video and audio files in your PowerPoint presentations, so no one misses a word of what you have to say.

Save as DAISY for Office 2010 helps you convert Word Open XML files to the Digital Accessible Information System (DAISY) format. DAISY powers digital talking books and compatible software and Braille readers for people with print disabilities or limited vision. This beta supports Office 2003, 2007 and 2010.
