Course literature as talking books

Download talking books online in Legimus.

If your course book is not available yet, the Library's contact persons for readers with disabilities will help you order recordings. It takes approximately 8 weeks to record a book. During this time you will receive parts of the book as they become available.

You can listen to talking books with an mp3-player, on a computer, or in an app for smartphones and tablets.
