Dear pranav,

I have been working on something and came across this mail again. Please correct me if I am wrong as this may be of interest to all working in digital books editing or conversion for S T E M.

My knowledge or assumption is as under

S V G  is accessible in a reader or say browser with screen reader.

In a digital talking book usually the source file needs to be imported into the daisy generator program and most likely to be from a word or HTML file. 

We can have an S V G  element in HTML file but not in a doc file.

I have been able to figure out to import an S V G file in a word file and hence we may populate the word file with the shape in the binary format as discussed with you and dynamically add the title and other contents that described the S V G element in the original file to the alt text feature of the shape file in a word document. 

This is usually the practice to describe the image if any in a daisy conversion. Please let me know if there is any explanation / understanding by me needed. 




Warm regards,

Kiran
