Very cool video with the DAISY Consortium's Secretary General George Kerscher discussing DAISY and the project for converting Open XML into DAISY: http://blogs.inquirer.net/techaddicts/2008/01/17/ivdo-daisy-makes-reading-documents-easier-for-the-blind/

I talked to George a bit about the power of semantics, and how the custom schema support and content controls in the Open XML format really help to shift documents away from the old world of digital typewriters into the new world of rich structured and reusable content.
