The Best Literacy Support Solution Just Got Better!

Provide your students with a multisensory approach to learning with the latest edition of Kurzweil 3000 and Kurzweil 3000-firefly. Built-in tools foster active participation throughout the full learning process — while anytime, anywhere access to curricula promotes independent learning at home and in the classroom. Here's how it works:


Read

Using natural sounding, high-quality text-to-speech voices combined with easy-to-use customization tools and an intuitive interface, Kurzweil 3000 enables students to read text that is at or even beyond their independent reading proficiency. Additional literacy tools use a multisensory approach to engage students as they develop language fluency, comprehension and retention. As a result, students with dyslexia, other learning disabilities, and English Language Learners are able to read at a higher level than they could independently and achieve success alongside their peers.



Comprehend

Interacting with text helps to improve comprehension and retention. Whether highlighting critical information in multiple colors, looking up a definition, or reacting to instruction embedded in the text, you can be assured that your students will develop a deeper comprehension of increasingly complex and larger volumes of instructional material.
