 This page is the instructions for how to use Converter Plus (formally NAC). As this is an ongoing project, this page is subject to updates as we improve the application and workflow. This page is the instructions for how to use Converter Plus (formally NAC).

 The purpose of Converter Plus is to perform a rapid DAISY conversion, requiring as little human intervention as possible. Moreover, all required interaction takes place in one simple phase, so operators need not return to the computer to complete a conversion. The interface is clean and simple, so is entirely accessible to screen readers. Independent of any particular device or platform, a conversion can be requested from virtually any web-capable device anywhere in the world. Finally, because the original audio files are not modified, the quality of the input tracks is not affected by a conversion. The purpose of Converter Plus is to perform a rapid DAISY conversion, requiring as little human intervention as possible.
