Original Author(s): Lynn Leith


MyStudio PC is a self voicing DAISY production tool. This guide is for people who are using MyStudio PC for the first time. It does not cover all of the functions of MyStudio PC, however, it will help you to create your first DAISY project and to understand how to use the software to produce DAISY books independently.

Recommended PC environment

MyStudio PC workstation (computer) requirements are as follows.
Note that if the workstation used does not meet these minimum requirements the functionality of the software may be negatively affected and it may not be possible to produce DAISY books on that workstation. Note also that these are minimum requirements. A workstation that has additional processing power will improve performance (digital audio files require a significant amount of storage space).
