Five Stars

"Directly edit the DAISY source files. No other software allows it and that why we are using Publisher for more than 10 years. Openness and flexibility is core of usability."

“We find Publisher both efficient and easy to use. Because it is so simple to understand it makes it easy to train operators, and this is enabling us to update our archives very effectively. A lot of our records date back to the 1950’s, so we are very pleased that Publisher gives us the means to update all of these books for the 21st Century.”

Stefan Grimmeisen, Blista

“Publisher is a unique audio recording tool. We use it not only to create full text DAISY Talking Books for VI students, but also as a simple 'self op' audio recording system for creating voiceovers, podcasts, newsletters etc.. Brilliant!”

Alan Marlow, Open University

Mystic Access Review and Choose Publisher

"One thing we particularly enjoy about Publisher is the versatility that it offers our customers once a book has been created in DAISY." 

"Our previous DAISY tool rendered books that couldn't be played via the popular Voice Dream Reader app, for instance, while books created via Publisher play beautifully."

"We have now created, and will continue to create, DAISY versions of all of our tutorials using Publisher."
