Rename the files and add playlists

If you open up the DAISY 2.02 and DAISY 3 folders, you'll notice that the filenames are not so user-friendly. We want to rename those files by their titles (headings). The process is slightly different for the DAISY 2.02 and DAISY 3 folders.

DAISY 2.02

  1. Go to File>New>Pipeline Job
  2. Under Modify and Improve>Multi-Format select the Renamer Tagger Validator script. This script will both rename the files and create playlists in multiple formats.
  3. Click Next
  4. In Input file, select the ncc.html file in the daisy202 folder
  5. In Output directory, select a folder to store the updated DAISY 2.02 files (create a new folder to store these files)
  6. Leave the optional parameter default as is
    1. Renaming pattern is seq+label
    2. File types to exclude: Z3986DtbookFile, Xhtml10File, CssFile, ImageFile; check Use filesystem safe names
    3. Max filename length is 60; check ID Tagging and Playlist generation
    4. Leave XML validation report empty
  7. Click Finish
  8. Select the job and click the green Run button. It should be a super quick process. When you open up the new DAISY 2.02 folder, you'll see that the files have nice names and 5 new playlists added.

DAISY 3

For the DAISY 3 book, the process is 2-step. For some reason, the above Renamer Tagger Validator script doesn't work on DAISY 3 (if it does then let us know!).

  1. Go to File>New>Pipeline Job
  2. Under Modify and Improve>Multi-Format select the Fileset renamer script . This script will rename the files.
  3. In Input file, select the opf file in the z3986 folder
  4. In Output directory, select a folder to store the updated DAISY 3 files (create a new folder to store these files)
  5. Leave the optional parameter default as is (same as above)
  6. Click Finish
  7. Select the job and click the green Run button. Your files should be nicely renamed now.
  8. Go to File>New>Pipeline Job
  9. Under Modify and Improve>Multi-Format select the Audio Tagger script. This script will create the playlists.
  10. In Input file, select the opf file in the new DAISY 3 folder that you previously created
  11. In Output directory, select this DAISY 3 folder
  12. Click Finish
  13. Select the job and click the green Run button. You'll probably get an error about being unable to generate the xspf playlist. You can ignore the error and delete this xspf file from the DAISY 3 folder. 4 other playlists should have been added to the folder.
