Can't find it in Legimus?

Ung kille pratar med bibliotekarie.If a piece of course literature is not found in Legimus, you can order it at the university library. We will record or adapt obligatory course literature.

Bring your reading list to the library when you make your order. If you are writing your thesis, you can instead present a note from your supervisor.

You should allow as much time as possible. It takes us 6 to 12 weeks to produce a new talking book, e-textbook or braille book. You recieve a mail when the book is ready.

The library can answer any questions relating to your order.

Reading talking books

There are different ways of reading talking books - on a computer, on a mobile device or with a DAISY player.

Give them a try and choose the method that best suits you. And remember: it's easy!

Read in your computer with a software digital player

Software digital players have many advantages when you read a talking book om your computer. You can personalise the players via a number of settings and navigate through books on different levels. You can for example

  • see the text and images on the screen (only for talking books that contain text!)  
  • turn off reading of picture descriptions  
  • add bookmarks  
  • adjust the length of pauses and the reading speed

Anyone can download AMIS free of charge, but for students  we offer the programmes EasyReader (PC) and ReadHear Mac. We do this because EasyReader and ReadHear Mac are better for reading course literature.

To order a software digital player

  1. Download a demo of either EasyReader or ReadHear Mac. You will find the links at the end of this side.
  2. Test the program to see if it’s for you. You will only receive one program from MTM.
  3. Order a code from MTM to transform the demo to a full version from program@mtm.se. We need to know your name, your birth date or Swedish personal identity number, the class you´re taking at the university and if you want a code for EasyReader or ReadHear Mac. Please note that this is only for students at a Swedish university.

The app Legimus for mobile phone or tablet

Händer som håller i en mobiltelefon.By using your mobile device you can easily take your talking book with you, wherever you go. The Legimus app is available for both iPhone / iPad and Android and can be installed for free via App Store and Google Play. The app is not available for Windows Phones or tablets.

 

Download a talking book

  1. Download the app in the App Store or Google Play.
  2. Sign in to the app
  3. Search for the book in the app and add it
  4. Start reading the book online or download it first to your phone or tablet

Talking book players

There are many players for talking books on the market. Some university libraries loan out talking book readers.

Braille

As a student who reads braille, you can also borrow braille books by order them via Legimus or at your library. Contact MTM for an Braille account.  

Braille books

Apart from books, we also adapt compendia and articles for braille. The material must be obligatory literature for your course. Order new books at your university library.

E-textbooks

E-textbooks consist of text files without sound and require you to have the program Textview installed on your computer. You will also need a screen reader and braille display or speech synthesis on your computer.

If you wish to order course literature in e-text form, please contact your university library.

Tactile images

When you order a new braille book, you can also request tactile images. This may be graphical figures in the book that have important content. The images will be reproduced using swell paper technology, i.e. black and white images in which the lines and surfaces are embossed.
