Kurzweil 3000

The Kurzweil 3000 Adaptive System is located on specific computers in the George S. Nevens Library.  Kurzweil 3000™ is a comprehensive reading, writing and learning software solution for any struggling reader, including individuals with learning difficulties, such as dyslexia, attention deficit disorder or those who are English Language Learners (ELL).  It provides both an auditory and visual presentation of scanned text and images.

A student is able to bring in text books, articles, or hand-outs and scan the material in order to “listen” to the assignments.  The student can use bookmarks and change the voice and speed that it reads to suit her individual preferences. The Kurzweil also comes with a CD pre-loaded with numerous works available to be read without scanning. With the CD, the student finds the author and clicks to locate the story needed.  Another click allows the student to start listening.

Kurzweil 3000 Features:

  • Scans and displays pages from any book or document
  • Speaks and highlights text: auditory and visual representation
  • Electronic talking dictionary with 175,000 word definitions
  • Synonyms
  • Speak while typing

  • Voice command recognition
  • Retains original page layouts
