How do I save a Kurzweil 1000 document as a PDF document?


Kurzweil 1000 does not natively support saving directly to a PDF format.  However, there are some alternative options available for saving as an OCR'ed (Optical Character Recognition) PDF document.


Option #1:  Save using Microsoft Office through Kurzweil 1000

As Kurzweil 1000 makes use of Microsoft Office for its import/export PDF handling, you can use Microsoft Office for saving as a PDF.  If you have Microsoft Office installed, follow these steps.

1.  Launch Kurzweil 1000

2.  Scan/Open the document you wish to save as a PDF

3.  Go to File > Save As

4.  For the current format, choose Other

5.  Choose OK

6.  Kurzweil 1000 will search for applicable file conversion capabilities on the machine.  If Microsoft Office is detected a list of available formats will appear that lists PDF.

7.  Choose PDF from this list

8.  Choose OK

9.  Give the document a name and select a destination directory


Option #2:  Use the KOCRUtil.exe Utility

This utility is included with Kurzweil 1000 v13/v14, and it allows for the recognition and immediate saving of documents to specific formats.  One of the supported formats is PDF.

1.  Browse into C:\Program Files (x86)\Kurzweil Educational Systems\KOCRUtil

2.  Launch KOCRUtil.exe (Note: this application does not have native speech so a screen reader is recommended)

3.  Fill in the following fields:

4.  Choose Start Recognition and allow the process to complete
