Access to Content is Not Enough

Aligning accessibility features with research-based learning strategies, that’s when learning really takes off.

New features in Kurzweil 3000 were developed to make it easier for students to process and articulate new concepts. We do this by guiding students through the learning process. Here's a list of new features aimed at doing just that:

  • Speech-to-text
  • Bibliography in MLA8 and APA format
  • Brainstorm templates (New for Higher Ed)
  • Column Notes (New for Mac)
  • Word Prediction in Brainstorms and Outlines
  • Check Spelling in Brainstorms and Outlines

High-quality Gets Even Higher

You may have heard, we have a reputation for high-quality. For us, it’s not about being the best, it’s about providing the best for your students.

New Acapela text-to-speech voices and updating to the latest ABBY FineReader OCR engine elevates the level of quality in Kurzweil 3000. Additional enhancements—such as skipping reading in header and footers and the ability to fix OCR errors online—work to provide the best reading experience possible.

Why is quality so important? There's a direct relationship between quality and user engagement. Experience the difference with a 30-day free trial.
