call for Test documents for the Microsoft Save as DAISY XML Plug-in

In support of the announced plug-in for Microsoft Word, Save as DAISY XML,
we are seeking documents for testing. We are looking for documents from:
-Publishers
-Alternative Media Producers (AMP), such as libraries serving the blind and
print disabled or university offices providing services to students with
disabilities.
-educators
-individuals

The DAISY Consortium, Microsoft, and the sub-contractors working on the
"Save as
DAISY XML" plug-in for Microsoft Word respect the rights of document owners.
The
copyright and any intellectual property contained in the documents submitted

will be honored. The documents submitted will be used only for testing the
translator. The documents will not be shared outside the small group working
on
the project. Each person working on the project has agreed to keep the
documents
secure. We are asking those submitting the documents to password protect the
zipped files and to place them in a secure area.

We can take files in Word 2007, 2003, and in Word XP. All languages are
accepted.
