The TorTalk story of Max Pahmp

University Student of Media Communications at Södertörn University.

I never thought I could have the same chance to study at the same level as other students; using TorTalk, it feels like my brain has an extra arm that boosts my performance.

Earlier in my life, I was lazy and didn’t like to study. Reading made me exhausted. After I was diagnosed as a dyslexic, at the age of 18, I took one year off (which turned into many years off..) but always thought I wanted to return to my studies. In the beginning of my current studies I felt I was way behind my classmates, it was very tough and every week felt like a struggle keeping up with the courses. I felt like I had food on the table but no way to reach for it.

Through the school student health system I got the TorTalk software to help me to read (listening to texts). Wow! The first feeling was just amazing. It was like my brain had an extra arm/limb. I read and listen with TorTalk at the same time, without getting tired in the same way. I can read longer periods and finally feel I can study like other people. I never thought I could have that. Using TorTalk I am able to keep up and perform at my very best. I am incredibly thankful for this program.
