Kurzweil 3000


Kurzweil 3000 is a reading, writing and learning software for students, including individuals with dyslexia, learning difficulties, or those who are English Language Learners. With the aid of visual and auditory feedback, the software helps students keep up with assigned reading, learn critical study skills and successfully complete writing projects and tests. The software can access virtually any information, whether it is printed, electronic, or on the Web. It then reads the words aloud to the student in clear, humanlike, synthetic speech, while a patented dual highlighting feature adds visual reinforcement. Visit their website for more information and to request a free demo disk at You can also view an online flash demonstration of Kurzweil 3000 at
