More about talking books

What is a talking book?

Adapted media such as talking books are produced in accordance with the Swedish Copyright Law paragraph 17.

Talking books are delivered in the DAISY format which makes it possible to turn the pages, perform searches and create bookmarks. They can be read and listened to on a computer with a reading program, on a smartphone, a tablet, or a DAISY player.

Synthetic speech or human reader

When course literature is produced, the MTM makes an assessment in each individual case as to the appropriate type of reading, which is either synthetic speech or a human reader. The language and structure of a given book is taken into consideration. The average production time is 6-12 weeks.
