About the website

This is information about the website design and technical functions.


The best way to visit the website is to use a modern browser with support for current web standards, such as the latest versions of Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome or Safari. For full function, you should also activate JavaScript in your browser.

Font size and magnification

You can zoom in or out on the website by pressing and holding the Ctrl key while pressing the + key (larger) or the – key (smaller), or by pressing the Ctrl key and turning the scroll wheel on your mouse up or down.

Some browsers also support enlargement of the font size only, but then the surfaces and images will not be scaled up as they are when you zoom in.

Text-to-speech service

The texts on Information about Sweden can be read out by a text-to-speech service, Talande Webb. You may need to add Talande Webb as a bookmark in your web browser. To do so, follow these steps:

1. Click on the Talande Webb link below (a new tab or window will open).





2. In the menu of the page that opens, find "Så funkar Talande Webb" and click on "Spara bokmärke".


3. Right-click on the link "Aktivera Talande Webb" and click on "Lägg till i Favoriter...".

In some browsers you can instead drag the link to your bookmark bar.

4. Go to Information about Sweden's home page and click on the link in your bookmarks bar. The tools popup should appear on the page.

Note that if you choose this way to use Talande Webb, you will need to activate the app for every new page you get to.


Images where no photographer is specified have been purchased from the image bank Colourbox (www.colourbox.com).
