Legimus 3.0 app launched in Sweden

 

January 27, 2014

MTM, the Swedish Agency for Accessible Media, has launched its final version of the Legimus app in the Google and Apple app stores. Legimus is the MTM branded version of the Online Daisy app for reading accessible books on smart phones and tablets - both Apple and Android.

Using Legimus, MTM patrons can search for books in their 100.000 title catalogue and lend books directly from the app. Legimus then provides the option to read books online or offline. Also, over 60 newspaper titles are available from the app using built-in computer speech.

"With over 5.000 app updates on the first day, the Legimus 3.0 version is a huge success", says Bert Paepen, Pyxima founder. "On Android this is the very first app with an audio speed changer for prerecorded audio books - which is an essential feature for visually impaired readers" he adds.

In the near future Pyxima, together with its partner Sensotec, will launch versions of the Online Daisy app in other countries as well.
