Last Updated: March 2018

This page contains general info regarding Dragon Naturally Speaking's (DNS) compatibility and functionality with Kurzweil 3000 (K3000).

Does Dragon Naturally Speaking work with Kurzweil 3000 for Mac and Windows?

The basic speech to text (i.e. dictation) functionality should work in both the latest version of Kurzweil 3000 for Mac and Windows, as it would in any third party software application where a cursor is within an open text field.

Additionally, you may be able to enforce advanced voice commands and menu navigation through DNS with K3000 for Windows only. See the attached voicecmd.rtf file for voice commands that may be enforced via the below method.

How do you enforce the additional DNS voice commands with Kurzweil 3000?

During the installation of K3000, a process will run that will attempt to configure DNS's NSApps.ini file. Note that this functionality was designed for Dragon Naturally Speaking 8 and may not apply to future versions of DNS if how DNS handles advanced voice commands in third party applications has changed.

If you install DNS after you install K3000, you will can run this configuration process after the fact by running C:\Program Files (x86)\Kurzweil Educational Systems\Kurzweil 3000\Dragon\DNSCompatability.exe

Does Kurzweil 3000 have a basic built-in speech to text feature?

Yes, the latest version of Kurzweil 3000 for Windows has basic built-in speech to text functionality (i.e. dictation), where you can speak into a microphone and text will be typed into an open text document. This function can be used via Tools > Speech to Text (Ctrl + F11) within K3000.
