Reading and writing support

Do you have reading impairment which makes it hard to read printed material? If so, you can get help in obtaining required reading as talking books. You can also get adapted course compendia and other teaching materials. Our computers are equipped with various support programs.

Contact your subject library

If you require talking books or other adapted literature, you can get an account with MTM, the Swedish Agency for Accessible Media. They have over 100 000 talking books in their catalogue Legimus, including many textbooks.

In order to obtain an account and more information on help and support, turn to your subject library. The librarian will register you in MTM’s digital library and give you an introduction to the downloading procedure. You will also get help to download the books and support with technical questions or other problems.

There is a Talking books guide (mainly in Swedish) with more information on how to access and use talking books.

Your subject library can also help you with information on software such as spellchecking programs installed on the computers which could be of help to you.

Programs on our computers

Many of the libraries’ computers are equipped with support programs:

• Easy Reader is a program for reading talking books and getting texts read out loud.
• Stava Rex is a spellcheck program for Swedish.
• Spell Right is a spellcheck program for English.

Contact the libraries to find out where you can use these programs.
