Read with your ears - TorTalk

Obligatory course literature can be adapted to talking books but there is also a lot of other material available through the library that can be useful for students, for example a large amount of articles and e-books from our databases. They can be read out to you by a speech synthesizer, TorTalk. To read articles protected from copying, use the ocr-button in TorTalk. It opens a window that can convert all text within the window frame into speech. Works with all format of text (copy protected PDF files and e-books can be read).All students and employees at KTH have access to TorTalk text to speech.
