Company History

Kurzweil Education was founded in 1996. The roots of the company extend back to 1976 and the introduction of the world's first reading system, the Kurzweil Reading Machine. Today, the company is recognized as the leading developer of literacy technology for people with learning difficulties and those who are blind or visually impaired. We offer products that bring the power and pleasure of reading and learning to the lives of users.

In 2005, Kurzweil Education was acquired by Cambium Learning, known as Cambium Learning Group.
