There is a Daisy reader built in, but it only supports the Daisy 3.0
format. Existing Daisy books are still using the older 2.0 format
which is much inferior from a technical point of view and so it wasn't
implemented in Emacspeak.

Well, if you can find a way of decrypting their books I expect they
can be read in Emacspeak without any significant difficulty.
