Kurzweil 3000 can support all stages of the writing process, providing numerous levels of support and
varied entry points to writing that result in successful written composition.
To be a good writer, one needs to have experience reading. Initially, using Kurzweil to read
text provides students with exposure to a much greater volume of examples of written work than
struggling readers would typically receive.
With Kurzweil 3000, students can take notes from text and seamlessly bring them in to Kurzweil
3000's Writing Path. In the Writing Path, writers can view and revise notes for writing
graphically, or with a text-based outline, or with outline and draft side-by-side, or draft
only and finally check work using a teacher-guided, student-specific "review checklist".
For students who require significant structure, Kurzweil 3000 provides pre-made graphic
organizers, with supportive notes, to guide students through the process of writing for a
number of different genres.
Kurzweil 3000's Brainstorm Tool is a great pre-writing organization tool for brainstorming
ideas which can later be organized graphically or in an outline view.
Finally, Kurzweil 3000 supports the final steps in the writing process with its talking word
processor and auditory spell checker, which allow the writer to put the finishing touches
on their work.
