Read about the latest update: release notes for 1.04

New in version 1.02 (released: 29/06/2012)

SaySo v1.0.2 includes a whole host of improvements to make SaySo even more solid and reliable, as well as offering new Save As functionality, network improvements, improvements to Bookshelf AND a US translation.

Make DAISY talking books with full heading navigation

SaySo's Save As feature has been improved to create higher quality DAISY books when saving an MS Word document.

In v1.0.2, when saving a Microsoft Word document to DAISY, all the document's headings and images are respected in the conversion. Once opened in a DAISY reader (e.g. Bookshelf reader in SaySo, or a hardware DAISY player), readers can instantly skip between any of these headings.

Network improvements

v1.0.2 includes a number of fixes to improve the deployment of SaySo via networks. To check whether SaySo is suitable for use on your network, contact Dolphin today!
