Daisy to ePub


Don Johnston, maker of Read:OutLoud and other software, has made Daisy to ePub converter software. The Daisy to ePub software works with Macs and PCs. The software converts accessible books such as NIMAS, DASIY and Bookshare to ePub format which can be read on popular eReaders. The software is very simple and converts books at the touch of a button. The Kindle is not compatible with ePub created with Daisy to ePub. It even coverts images within accessible books to ePub images. Daisy to ePub  works with iOS devices, Nooks and Sony Reader. If you are interested in reading your Daisy, NIMAS or Bookshare books with your eReader; Daisy to ePub is a great tool. Once you have your book on your eReader you can use its built in accessibility features to read the book aloud. (Such as VoiceOver on iOS devices) Daisy to ePub costs $99 for use on one computer.

  1. Have you trialed this reader? Does the converter maintain all the formatting etc. Can you choose font and spacing sizes once converted? I've read alot of blogs where people try to convert themselves (and even tried myself) and there seem to be formatting glitches.

    I am on the fence about this especially now that Read2Go is available for the ipad. Also, an ipad will not meet all my sons word processing and technology needs at this point.

  2. Hi. Thanks for reading the blog. Daisy to ePub will maintain the original formatting of the original Daisy book. Now that the Read2go app is out it is defiantly the best way to read Bookshare books on the iPad or iPhone. Daisy to ePub is $100 and Read2go is $20. If you need more information about Read2go click here. Please feel free to ask any other questions you may have.

  3. Just to clarify Daisy to ePub converts your Bookshare book into a file that can be used on the iPad. So if your child needs to use a computer there is no need for Daisy to ePub. To read a book on the computer you should download Read Out Loud which is free for bookshare members. To download Read Out Loud click here.
