Recorded literature

Students with reading and writing difficulties are able to borrow course literature in alternative formats from Swedish Agency for Accessible Media - MTM 

What are the rules?

Students with reading and writing difficulties are able to borrow recorded literature. The Library will provide you with an account. With an account you will be able to download the books you need directly from the web based MTM catalogue. The loan period is six months. To use the service, please contact contact the Library and we will help you get set.

With an account you may borrow mandatory course literature whether it is already recorded or has to be produced. Literature that requires new recordings will take six-twelve weeks. 

Media formats

The course literature is produced as talking books and e-text.

Talking books

The talking books are recorded versions of printed books. You can listen to talking books on a computer, smartphone or a dedicated player.

E-text

To read e-text books in your PC you will need Textview, a browser for electronic text, with a license number and an adaption like speech synthesizer or braille display.

Contacts

If you have questions about talking books, please contact the Library and we will help you to get set.
