DAISY—Structure Guidelines: Elements, Inline Elements, Information Object Word
A character or group of characters enclosed by two spaces.
This element can be used to mark each word in a digital talking book so that the audio and text files can be synchronized at the word level. Tagging of individual words would normally be done by a production tool (if at all), rather than by hand.
