Synthetic speech

The textbooks are mainly talking books produced with synthetic speech.  These books are accompanied by text, so that you can listen and follow the text in parallel on the screen.

Production of textbooks

Blind and severely partially sighted students are entitled to production of textbooks . An ophthalmologist or teacher for the visually impaired must confirm the visual impairment. See criteria for right to production of literature (in Norwegian).

Ask the student service

If you do not find the books you are searching for, you can contact the student service at NLB. They can help you to locate books on your reading list.
