NIMAS Fileset

A NIMAS fileset consists of the following:

  • XML content file,
  • a package file (OPF),
  • a PDF-format copy of title page andISBN and copyright information pages, and
  • a full set of content images in SVG, JPG, or PNG format.

A NIMAS fileset is a set of source files that may be rendered into a variety of output formats, including student-ready versions such as audio books, Braille editions, etc. It is not a post-production product; it is a pre-production product. NIMAS files are intended for use by publishers, authorized entities, and others to produce accessible versions of printed instructional materials. They are not intended to be used as-is and should not be considered finished products. XML content files in NIMAS filesets must be conformant to the NIMAS 1.1 specification, a sub-set of the DAISY 2005-2 DTD. By definition, a NIMAS XML file will validate to the NIMAS 1.1 DTD.
