In June 2014, the DAISY Consortium announced the new release of the next generation open source multimedia book production tool, Tobi. Tobi is a unique software tool that can produce publications compliant with both the DAISY 3 and the mainstream EPUB 3 specifications. It includes the unique capability of adding accessibility enhancements, such as image descriptions, to the mainstream EPUB 3 publications. From the Change Log:

DIAGRAM image descriptions: EPUB3 export (XHTML5), including audio and alternative images (like DAISY projects), based on @longdesc, @aria:describedAt, @aria:describedBy / iframe + fixed metadata issue when importing DIAGRAM XML.

This release also addresses reported issues and includes other bug fixes. To download Tobi or to learn more about it, please visit the Tobi project area For more information about what’s new in this release, please visit the change log
