FAQ

What is Kurzweil 3000 Subscription? What does it come with?

The Kurzweil 3000 Subscription version, is a subscription solution that contains access to multiple components:

  1. The installed Kurzweil 3000 desktop software application. This can installed on a Mac or Windows computers.

  2. The website kurzweil3000.com, known as Kurzweil 3000 Web App. Built into the website is an HTML5 web app that acts as a "lite" version of the desktop software application that runs entirely off the website, with no installation required. Also built into the website are user management system for administrators.

Can the full version of the Kurzweil 3000 client software be installed on a tablet or smart phone device?

The Kurzweil 3000 (K3000) software is designed to run on a full Windows or Mac OSX desktop/laptop/tablet operating system (e.g. Windows 7 and higher; Mac OS X 10.9 and higher). Typically a smart phone would not be able to install Kurzweil, however a full Windows or Mac tablet would most likely allow it. If you find your mobile device cannot install Kurzweil, the Kurzweil 3000 Subscription version utilizes a complimentary web app called the Kurzweil 3000 Web App, which can function on most mobile devices that have HTML5 support in their browsers. Please note that as there is a vast amount of HTML5 supported devices, as such we cannot guarantee every device will function 100% properly and are working on improving compatibly as time permits. With this being said, using a Chrome or Firefox browser on these devices will most likely function as expected.
