Applies to Versions:  Kurzweil 3000 Web License firefly (Win)

General Information

What is the Universal Library Uploader?

The Universal Library Uploader utility is a standalone tool that uploads files or folders into the Universal Library web storage. These files once uploaded become available via the *Kurzweil 3000 Web client interface, firefly website, and the iPad app. Please note that the web storage library option is only available with a Kurzweil 3000 Web License+firefly product subscription.

*If you upload files that are not already converted to the .kes format using the uploader, in order for them to appear in the Kurzweil 3000 Web License client, you must first attempt to open the files once via the firefly system, this will then make the files viewable from the "File > Open from Library" option in the installed client. If you wish to get around this problem, you can first use the automater to convert your files, and then use the uploader afterwards.

Who should use the Universal Library Uploader?

The Universal Library Uploader utility is intended for use by schools with large pools of local Kurzweil 3000 content that they would like to host on the firefly web based Universal Library storge system.
