NISO Members Approve Project to Revise Digital Talking Book Standard

Aug 12, 2008

The National Information Standards Organization (NISO) has approved a project that will revise Specifications for the Digital Talking Book (ANSI/NISO Z39.86). Integral to this process is the DAISY (Digital Accessible Information SYstem) Consortium, maintenance agency for the so-called DAISY/NISO standard. The standard will approach the challenge from two directions: distribution and authoring. A working group roster is now being formed.
