DaisyWorm is a DAISY digital talking book playback app for the Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. DaisyWorm supports the playback of none-encrypted DAISY 2.02, DAISY/NISO z3986 audio only and full text full audio books.
DaisyWorm was developed by the Association for the Blind of Western Australia and can be used to play books from our library as well as other talking book libraries world wide which use the non-encrypted DIASY format. The Association for the Blind of Western Australia library can be accessed at: www.guidedogswa.org/library/

There are three ways to download books into DaisyWorm:
Transfer Booksbutton in the Options screen. DaisyWorm will then tell you the IP address and username and password to connect to DaisyWorm by means of your preferred FTP client on your computer. When you have done this you should transfer the directory contents of your DAISY book to the device. Remember to transfer the whole directory and not the DAISY files them selves. DAISY books are made up of any number of files including .html, .smil, audio files as well as others. These files should all be placed into a directory and that directory transferred to DaisyWorm.
iPhone Exploreryou will need to place the books into the following location: iPhone/Apps/DaisyWorm/Documents/Books Remember to put the book's directory into this location and not the book's files.
No matter which method you use it is important to remember to transfer the directory holding the DAISY book's files and not the files individually. DaisyWorm should read all valid DAISY 2.02 and DAISY/NISO z3986 (2005) books. Should you encounter a book which does not play or will not appear on the list, check the FAQ section below for trouble shooting first, please email the book's ncc.html or .ncx file to email@example.com so that we may look at the issue here. It is not necessary to send us the whole book only the ncc.html or .ncx file are needed.
The next thing you should try is to power off the device and then power it back on and then open DaisyWorm and see if the book appears.
Finally if the book does not show up in the list its files are likely encoded in something other than UTF-8 or UTF-16. You can change a book's text encoding by using the free program Daisy Pipeline which is available in versions for Windows, Macintosh and Linux from the DAISY Consortium. Once installed follow these steps:
iPhone Exploreryou will need to place the books into the following location: iPhone/Apps/DaisWorm/Documents/Books remember to put the book's directory into this location and not the book's files. Using
iPhone Exploreris much faster than using the wireless network option.
wormrespectively. A new window with open with the contents of DaisyWorm's books directory. You can then simply copy your book to that directory just as you would any other file in windows.
