Our mandate is to ensure that all persons with reading impairments can access literature and daily newspapers through media appropriate to them.
We produce and distribute talking books, Braille books and easy-to-read books and news. MTM is the central lending facility of accessible literature for Swedish libraries, with the www.legimus.se digital library acting as the hub in this area. One special mandate is to provide university and college students access to their required reading through media appropriate to them.
A large and crucial field is research and development relating to new techniques for production and reading. MTM plays an important role in the technological development of accessible media. We also cooperate with libraries all over the world.
Our operations are financed by the Ministries of Culture and Education, and are supported and regulated by laws and ordinances.
