Libdaisy is a toolkit for parsing and playing Daisy Digital Talking Books (DTB). Libdaisy is developed for the Linux operation systems under the GNU General Public License.

Libdaisy does not offer the complete functionality according to the Daisy standards and is not a finished library. Even though the library is not complete, it offers the most important functionality for playing a Daisy DTB. Libdaisy partially supports two of the Daisy standards, DAISY 2.02 and the new standard ANSI/NISO Z39.86.

Please visit the DaisyPlayer project web page for more information.
