The Reference and Children's Room Librarians here get a lot of questions from the public on how to operate the computers with the Kurzweil 3000 software. The software is set up to assist patrons who are visually and/or hearing impaired and who have difficulty reading books and documents. It offers the option of hearing the text being scanned in English and other language and magnification of text. Directions on how to operate it can be accessed here.
An instructional video showing how to operate the Kurzweil 3000 has also been posted online. You can watch it below:
If all else fails, just stop by the Reference Desk on the first floor and ask one of the librarians there to show you. -Ed
