DAISY add-in with Word 2013?

Will the MS Word to DAISY add-in work with Word 2013?



No response - very disappointing

Dear Andrew,

Looks like not many people are using Save As DAISY with Word 2013 and therefore you did not get a response earlier.

I could get my copy of Office 2013 only yesterday and after few tests I can confirm that the latest version of DAISY Translator is working with Word 2013.

I have tested the 32 bit version of Office 2013 on Windows 7. After installation Word automatically detected the DAISY add-in which was installed previously, I did not have to reinstall it. I could easily validate documents and convert them to XML or full DAISY.

I have tested the last Save As DAISY release v2.5.5.1. It is available at http://www.daisy.org/project/save-as-daisy-microsoft/

Hope you have also seen the video tutorials and step-by-step guides on DAISYpedia at http://www.daisy.org/daisypedia/microsoft-word-add-in



Thanks very much. I have used the add-in with Word 2010 and am refurbishing an old machine to do conversions. Didn't want to put 2013 on if it wouldn't cooperate.



I tried to install on Windows 8 64 bit with Office 2013 64 bit but I got the following error message box at the very beginning:

"Microsoft Word do not install"


Thanks for the warning. That has rather messed up my plans, as that is the configuration I was planning to use. I will see if I can image the disk before trying to install the add-in and see what happens. May take some time to organise.


Hi Andrew,

Save as DAISY add-in is now available for 32-bit and 64-bit Office 2013:
