Kurzweil workstations available at UNB Libraries

Kurzweil workstations, including Kurzweil 3000 software and compatible scanners, are now available at the Harriet Irving, Science and Forestry, and Engineering libraries.

Kurzweil 3000 is an advanced scanning and reading solution for people who are visually impaired or have reading or learning difficulties, and includes the following features:

  • Variable magnification.
  • High quality synthetic speech (headphones are available for use on-site).
  • Can accommodate scanned or electronic text documents in a range of formats.
  • Integrated dictionary for unfamiliar words or terms (including spelling and pronunciation features).
  • A ?Read the Web? feature, allowing access to millions of Internet pages.

UNB Libraries is pleased to offer this service as part of our ongoing commitment to removing barriers to access for patrons with disabilities.
