The specific needs of blind and visually impaired readers are the foundation of Textalk publication tools, which encompass everything from data collection and conversion to editing tools for e-newspapers, e-reader apps, and subscription solutions. Our primary focus is on accessibility for everyone, which is why it naturally follows that our publishing solutions and e-news platforms are particularly easy to use and accessible also for sighted readers. That is why Prenly is one of the largest e-newspapers in Sweden.
We believe user friendliness and price are crucial aspects of accessibility. Abicart, our e-commerce solution, is developed with the goal of anyone being able to start a professional webshop or e-store without the obstacles of investing or experiencing technical difficulties. Put simply, it should be attainable and easy to grasp for everyone. That is why Abicart is one of the most popular e-commerce solutions in Sweden. It is inexpensive, fast, easy to use and has as many (if not more) finesses and functions as e-commerce solutions that are many times more expensive.
Our founder created the first digital newspaper for visually impaired consumers in 1979. For decades, government authorities have commissioned us, in cooperation with newspaper publishers, to make Swedish daily newspapers accessible to visually impaired and blind readers.
