Last Updated: Jan 2022

Applies to: Kurzweil 3000 Subscription, kurzweil3000.com, Read the Web, Respondus

 

Does Kurzweil 3000 work with Respondus? Does Read the Web work with Respondus?

Yes!

Respondus works with both the Read the Web extension (which is now included within Respondus by default) and it works with our kurzweil3000.com website.

You will need a web license subscription account to kurzweil3000.com in order to access Read the Web through Respondus or our kurzweil3000.com website.

 

If you want to use Read the Web within Respondus, follow the instructions on Respondus' website here:

Read the Web Respondus instructions: https://support.respondus.com/hc/en-us/articles/4409607390747-How-to-enable-the-Kurzweil-ReadTheWeb-extension

If you have problems using Read the Web within Respondus, please contact Respondus technical support: https://web.respondus.com/support/

Respondus is providing support for Read the Web within Respondus.

 

Can you log in with Microsoft or Google to Read the Web within Respondus?

Not at this time.

At this time, you cannot log in with Microsoft or Google to the Read the Web extension within Respondus. You must know your kurzweil3000.com username/password for kurzweil3000.com.

Your username/password for kurzweil3000.com can be accessed and changed by logging into kurzweil3000.com (you can log in with Microsoft or Google, not using Respondus), and then going to My Account > Profile

 

Can you use the advanced features (screenshot reader, highlight, dictionary, etc.) of Read the Web within Respondus?

Not at this time.

Certain features (e.g. dictionary lookup) that can be exploited for test taking are disabled within Respondus.

 

How do I access kurzweil3000.com through Respondus?

If you're not interested in using Read the Web to read a LMS (e.g. Canvas, Blackboard, Moodle, etc.), and want to access the kurzweil3000.com website (that contains an HTML5 web app that runs off of it, containing many of the features of our installed Kurzweil 3000 desktop app), then you will first need to whitelist some URLs related to kurzweil3000.com within Respondus for this website and our web app to be accessible within the Respondus browser:

— https://www.kurzweil3000.com/ShowFileList.php
