    Dear Marvoice,

    Obi is destop based tool. If the cloud storage integrates well with windows file explorer then Obi can pick up file path as usual. Obi does not do anything special for cloud storage. So, you need to check how well the your cloud integrates with windows file explorer.

    With regards

    Thank you. So is there kind of "online" Obi or how does it work?

    Hello MarcVoice,

    Welcome to Obi forum.
    Obi should read file from cloud storage especially if the cloud storage integrates well with windows explorer.

    You can go through the link below to know more about obi.

    Hi there, sorry to resurrect this after 5 years, but I was wondering if you ever found a solution to the registry rerouting to the 64 reg.exe, and not allowing the program to run. I think that's the reason MathDaisy won't install for me, (I think). here's the digging, and correspondance I've done so far on the issue..

    Forums:
    Save as DAISY Microsoft
    Hi, when I try to install MathDaisy, I get the following 5 'non-fatal' errors: (below). Though it says Installation was successful, when I attempt to "Save As Full Daisy from one docx" it goes through the first translation step, and then freezes around step 2/14 in the second translation bar, and gives me the following error:
    "Documents containing mathmatics cannot be converted to DAISY format without a plugin to create alternative text and images.
    Please visit http://www.daisy.org/projects/pipeline/other-add-ins.shtml for information on such
    plugins for the DAISY Pipeline
    Then in the dialogue box below it says:

    You have not mentioned the version of your Microsoft Office. Officially, MathDaisy is supposed to work with Microsoft Word upto version 2007. However, it is reported to work with Word 2010 also. MathDaisy has not been updated in many years and users have reported installation issues on newer operating systems and with newer versions of Microsoft Office.
    If you are using Word later than 2010, then you may try with an earlier version of Office.
    You may also contact Design Science, the makers of MathDaisy. The contact information available on their website is as follows.
    How do I contact Technical Support for MathDaisy? MathDaisy technical support is free. Contact our technical support team by calling +1 (562) 432-2920, Monday through Friday from 8 AM - 5 PM Pacific, GMT - 8:00. , or email support@dessci.com.

    Hi there, Sorry, I forgot to indicate that I was using MS Word 2016, however, I do have a purchased copy of Office 2010, so after reading your response, I uninstalled 2016, and installed 2010 with the "Save As Daisy" and the MathType Add-ons. Unfortunately, when I try to produce a full Daisy file in "save as Daisy", I get the same errors as I did in 2016. I realized over the weekend that the program isn't installed at all, even though the installation log claims the installation was successful, there's no "MathDaisy" icon in the programs list, or on the desktop, or in the start menu.. also there's no way for me to uninstall the program, (as indicated by the dessci documentation here: file:///C:/Program%20Files%20(x86)/Math%20Daisy/readme.html). Design Science indicate that there's a MathDaisy uninstall file: Uninstall: select "Uninstall MathDaisy 1.0" from the "MathDaisy" folder in the Start Menu. - I don't have this file..:
    Fumbling in the dark, i tried to diagnose the "daisy.exe" file with Visual Studio, and attempted to debug it there, I get the following output:

    -would this output log be more evidence of a previous poster's finding, in his difficulty installing/running the program? It seems the program was exclusively referencing the SysWoW64 registry key, and finding nothing, as the installer is 32 bit. To recap the previous poster, he stated,
    " the Windows 64 has two REG.exe, and both programs looks into different registry tables. The pipeline-ms-lite is calling the wrong REG (\Windows\SysWOW64\REG), and the code SHOULD pass the entire path for REG (\Windows\System32\REG)", (http://www.daisy.org/forums/18556).
    The person who i was corresponding with from Dessci thought it could be an MS 2016 - compatibiliy issue, (I wrote him before installing 2010), or that it was a problem with Save as Daisy. I don't think it is though, given the fact the MathDaisy doesn't seem to be installing on my 64 bit system. The commenter at http://www.daisy.org/forums/18556 link, (bottom), says that exclusively calling the WoW64_64 Registry for some 32 bit programs is a windows 64 bug, (if indeed this is the problem), any known work arounds for this?
    Thanks so much,
    Ben
    I've attached the email correspondance, (pdf) between myself and Dessci, so you can see what questions have already been raised.
    Thank you
    Ben - It only lets me upload the pdf to the original message, which I'll do..

    Thanks so much!

    Saksham Trust and the DAISY Forum of India have converted the NIOS books to DAISY and EPUB. They continue to convert books on a regular basis and they will be happy to do books on your request. Please contact Mr. Dipendra Manocha on his email ID "d[at the rate]Saksham.org". Please replace [at the rate]with @ symbol. He can also arrange trainings if you want to do the conversion yourself.

  • (AMIS forum) 3 days 23 hours ago

    Anyone can install AMIS on Windows 10 since it is free. After successful installation, one should run AMIS normally. If that does not work, then one should try the compatibility modes. The compatibility modes are available in each installation.

  • (AMIS forum) 4 days 1 hour ago

    Fortunately, I can use AMIS on Windows 10 to read DAISY books. I was advised earlier about AMIS with Compatibility Mode and I have it

    Is there a way for prospective users on Windows 10 to install AMIS with Compatibility Mode to check if it will work?

  • (General forum) 4 days 2 hours ago

    Thanks you PVerma for your advice and information about limitations on DAISY format textbooks published by NIOS and recommendations to use EPUB format textbooks of NIOS

    Our students with print disabilities will use Balabolka freeware to read EPUB textbooks of NIOS

    NIOS textbooks for Mathematics, Science and Technology and Painting are available only  in PDF and DAISY formats. As DAISY format audio only textbooks are not useful to dyslexic students, we would be happy to receive suggestions for means to convert the PDF format books to EPUB format
