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 install different kinds of assistive software on your computer or phone. Many of the computers om campus are equipped with the same assistive software.

Talking books

If you require talking books or other adapted literature, you can get an account with MTM, the Swedish Agency for Accessible Media. In their digital library, Legimus, you find over 100 000 talking books, including many textbooks. You need to have a disability that makes it difficult to read printed text to get access to Legimus. However, you do not need to have a certificate of your reading disability.

In order to obtain an account and more information on help and support, contact your subject library. The librarian will register you in Legimus and give you an introduction to how talking books works. You will also get help to download the books and support with technical questions or other problems.

Assistive software

All students and staff can install the following software on their computer:

  • TorTalk is a text-to-speech software (it's also available as an app for iPhone/iPad and Android phones).
  • Stava Rex is a spellcheck program for Swedish.
  • Spell Right is a spellcheck program for English.

In the Talking books guide you’ll find information about how to download, install and use assistive software
