Textalk is a spin-off from a research project that took place in the late 1970’s in our home town Göteborg in Sweden. The major daily newspaper Göteborgs-Posten initiated a project together with the technical university Chalmers which aimed to create an all digital newspaper service for blind and visually impaired users.
The project was a success and as a result Textalk was founded by the researcher at Chalmers, mr Henryk Rubinstein (who is still active at Textalk).
In the mid 1990’s we also entered the world wide web and since then we provide cloud based solutions for online surveys, school newspapers, e-commerce, pdf-browsing, email distribution, plus much more.
Today we are about 20 employees (mostly engineers) trying to increase accessibility of what's important.
