The Skippability Tweaker

The optional features described in the DAISY 2.02 specification as of October 2002, were to be implemented in production tools or in playback systems. Several Members of the DAISY Consortium serving students have been extremely vocal about the need for this feature.

These technical individuals in collaboration with the technical DAISY staff have developed a strategy to implement these features that is completely independent of LpStudio/Pro or Sigtuna DAR.

Organizations who wish to implement these features would be required to include additional markup in their source files and to use a post processing tool - The Skippability Tweaker - on the completed project to add this functionality.

The Skippability Tweaker supports adding these features to both NCC-Only and Full Text DTBs. Supported skippable structures are pagenumbers, sidebars, producer notes and footnotes.
