Accessibility Office Hours Webinar: Kurzweil 3000

Online via Zoom
June 6, 2019
1 pm - 2 pm


Accessibility Office Hours: Capabilities of the Kurzweil 3000 Web Application
 
Kurzweil 3000 offers a multi-sensory approach to reading and learning through a combination of text-to-speech functionality, synchronized highlighting, voice notes, and visual document enhancements. A challenge for alternate media and assistive technology specialists at colleges can be understanding which features are available or how to access these capabilities in the web-based version of the Kurzweil 3000 application.

The Kurzweil 3000 web application has the ability to open files from cloud-based sources (e.g., Google Drive, Bookshare, etc.) or local files. Students have the ability to hear text read aloud on the screen while synchronously highlighting the spoken text. Adding notes, highlighting text, and extracting content into a separate document are other capabilities in the web application.

This webinar will focus on the key features of Kurzweil 3000's web application that college assistive technology specialists should know when working with students, including tools such as the dictionary, bookmarks, translation, and word prediction. The Kurzweil 3000 web application can be used on mobile devices or any Internet-connected device. Bring your questions about the use of the web application of Kurzweil 3000.

The Accessibility Office Hours offer the opportunity to ask questions and share best practices regarding web, document, and assistive technology accessibility issues. Audience participation is welcome!
