Does Kurzweil 3000 work with Respondus?

kurzweil3000.com

Our kurzweil3000.com website (that contains an HTML5 web app that runs off of it, containing many of the features of our installed desktop app) can be accessed via the Respondus browser if you whitelist the following URLs within Respondus:

 https://www.kurzweil3000.com/KLogin.php

Read the Web extension for Chrome, Firefox and Respondus

However, what most people are interested in is installing our Read the Web extension (normally for Firefox/Chrome) into Respondus. They then want to use Respondus to access a LMS like Canvas and have a student take a test there, then use our Read the Web extension to read that test from the LMS website.

Respondus normally disallows third party extensions being installed into it, even if they are coded for it and the Chromium architecture it's built on (such as the attached .crx extension). Our development team is working with the Respondus development team on compatibility solutions.


Kurzweil 3000 desktop application Screenshot Reader

If you have the Kurzweil 3000 desktop application installed, we do have an Screenshot/Image Reader tool that can be accessed from the Windows Taskbar (right-click the taskbar > Toolbars > Kurzweil Taskbar). You can click the Image Reader button on the taskbar and drag a rectangle around a section of your screen. Kurzweil 3000 will recognize and read that section to you aloud.

Respondus normally disallows such applications from being accessible. Our development team is working with the Respondus development team on compatibility solutions.
