The HoverCam cameras are not working properly within Kurzweil 1000.


  1. Login to your machine as a local Administrator account
  2. Ensure that you have patched your Kurzweil 1000 version to the latest patch.  See this article for more information: http://support.cambiumtech.com/index.php?pg=kb.page&id=1416
  3. Connect the camera device to the machine
  4. Install the drivers for the camera device (refer to the device documentation for detailed instructions)

  5. Launch Kurzweil 1000
  6. Go to Settings > Scanning (Alt T, S)
  7. Set the Threshold to Color
  8. Set the Scanner Source to your camera device (ie: either Hovercam or Sceye)
  9. Choose OK (Enter)
  10. Go to Settings > Save Settings (Alt T, V)
  11. Save over the default or create a new settings file (if a new settings file is created, it will need to be loaded upon each launch of Kurzweil 1000)
