How and why I would use the available software: Kurzwahl 3000/ Kurzwahl 3000-firefly
When English language learners, as well as other students write their essays, they can start with an outline with the help of the software. The Kurzweil 3000-firefly app, which is free is wonderful for readings, or books. Students can use their iPads or laptops to conduct reading through their auditory senses. This is particularly helpful for students who have low vision. It is also useful for ELLs, for they are able to listen to proper pronunciation, as well as improve their literacy skills.
I think it is great to check what Universities offer students who need assistance. I would use the site to check for updates, educational tools, and ways to help students improve and stay motivated. This is a great tool.
