The DAISY Pipeline is a generic framework for document- and DTB-related pipelined transformations. It operates mainly with scripts. Scripts are XML documents representing a sequence of steps (i.e. a chain of transformers), each step performing an operation on the input data or the result of the previous step. When a user wants to run a new Pipeline Job, he first selects a script and then provides values for its parameters. The Pipeline supports the following input formats: WordML 2003, ODF (, RTF, XHTML, Audacity, etc. It supports in the conversion of documents into various output formats: Daisy 2.02 DTBs, DAISY/NISO Z39.86 2005 DTBs, Open eBook (OPS 2.0, OCF), XHTML, RTF, LaTeX.

Operating system: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8

Installation: Run the file  PipelineGUI-20111215-Win.
