Summary


Almost three years ago Microsoft and the Digital Accessible Information SYstem (DAISY) Consortium launched new software to make it easier for anyone to create accessible documents and content for blind and print-disabled individuals.  The "Save as DAISY" add-in has been very well-received by the community and eases the availability of digital talking books.  An update (Save as DAISY for Office 2010) is being released as well as a new tool for the hearing disabled:  STAMP. It enables users to add captioning to PowerPoint 2010 videos with both Timed Text Markup Language (TTML) files and a captioning editor added to PowerPoint.  This workshop presents these two new Microsoft Office 2010 Add-ins.
