Talking books

If you have reading or writing difficulties, you can get your course literature adapted as talking books, Braille or e-text. KTH Library will help you get access to the format that best suits you.

There are many reasons why you might need adapted books, like dyslexia, visual impairment, physical disability or something else.

The most common of adapted books is talking books, but there are other formats aswell, like Braille. You can listen to talking books on your computer, mobile phone or tablet.

Talking books can be found in the talking books library Legimus, and to get access you need to make an appointment with us here at the library. You can choose a time that suits you, and the talking books introduction can be held in the main library, in Kista, in Södertälje or in Flemingsberg.

Those who need it are entitled to get all their obligatory course literature adapted. If you need a course book that has not been adapted yet, we can help you order a recording of it. However, it can take a long time to produce a new talking book so it is important to contact us as soon as possible.

Book a reading studio

If you have a certificate from the coordinator for disabled students (Funka) you can book the reading studio at the Main Library, Kista or Flemingsberg. These rooms are available when the libraries are open and they can be booked in advance. Bring your certificate to the library the first time you want to use the studio. Book a reading studio in the schedule.
