Talking books

If you study at Halmstad University and have a reading disability you can get your obligatory course literature adapted to another format and made available through the service Legimus.

What are the rules?

A reading disability means that you need to have a printed book adapted to be able to read it. There are many reasons why someone might have a reading disability, such as dyslexia, visual impairment, physical disability or something else that makes it difficult for you to read printed text.

The most common format is talking books, but there are other formats as well, like Braille.

How to get access to adapted literature

Contact us so we can give you an introduction to the service Legimus and talk about your various options. If you already have an Legimus account from another library, simply log in to "Mina sidor" in Legimus, and change your library to Högskolebiblioteket i Halmstad under "Mina uppgifter".
