At Swedish Agency for Accessible Media, MTM, we produce and lend books that are adapted to people with reading difficulties.
Talking books are produced in accordance with an exception to the Copyright Act. They have been specially recorded for people who have reading difficulties and who therefore cannot read printed matter. You are not permitted to borrow talking books with the sole intention of learning Swedish.
All libraries throughout Sweden lend talking books. You do not need attestation, it is sufficient that you inform the staff that you need to borrow a talking book. There is no cost involved. Ask the staff, they are only too willing to help you.
You can download talking books directly from our catalogue Legimus. Your library will help you by providing you with a username and password and by showing you what you must do. Remember that you need a Swedish civic registration number in order to download.
You can listen to a talking book in several different ways: with an MP3 player, in your computer with a suitable program, or in your mobile telephone.
We also lend Braille books in several languages. Do contact us if you want to borrow some of these books.
In Legimus, you will be able to see which Talking Books and Braille books there are available. You can also find books in other formats. We will also be able to help you acquire books from other countries.
