Literature service for blind and visually impaired people

The literature service for blind and visually impaired people is a service provided by the Vienna University Library as an infrastructure for its students. It aims at improving integration and facilitating access to study materials.

The Library scans its print material and makes it available for screen readers as a Word file. As a result, a document that was originally only available in the form of a book can be

  • read using Braille displays;
  • printed in Braille;
  • displayed on a monitor in a highly magnified or high-contrast version;
  • or read via screen reader.

The amount of time needed to process your request depends on the availability of the source material and the number of requests made at the same time.
