What is Kurzweil 3000?

Kurzweil 3000 is an assistive technology product available through the testing center at the main Choate Ave location. Integrating assistive technology helps educators and students overcome the challenges that learning disabilities bring to a classroom environment. Kurzweil 3000 utilizes many different components, like text-to-speech, to benefit students through…

  • Improved Focus and Organization: Kurzweil 3000 allows students to access files and web pages including text books, tests, and homework for use with tools such as Text-to-Speech, Magnification and Bookmarks, which can be used to keep learners on task and organized.
  • Promotes Independent Learning: Learners can select from a host of dynamic features designed to adapt to their individual learning style—from exploring new concepts to synthesizing and demonstrating what they learned.
  • A Platform for Test-Taking: Learners can test independently, at their own pace, using customized test-taking toolbars that align with their accommodation needs. Educators can adapt tests using a test-prep tool bar and distribute tests securely.
