The University offers you the use of the text-to-speech reading tool TorTalk. This enables you to listen to texts that appear on screens: for example, e-books and locked PDF files. TorTalk is useful for people who have reading and writing difficulties, or a first language other than Swedish. It can also be used as a means of study support. You can listen to both Swedish and English texts.
TorTalk is installed on computers in the Campus Falun library, as well as in a number of our computer labs: see information on our webpage Internet/Computer Lab Access on Campus.
You - staff and students - can download TorTalk to your own computers when you are logged in.
