"We continually hear from educators, students, and parents about the life-altering experience our products provide. This name change reflects our philosophy that anyone can succeed, whether they're a student in primary, secondary, or postsecondary studies, or an adult in the workplace. Our tools enable real learning to happen and help unlock each learner's unique potential."
Kurzweil Education's flagship product, Kurzweil 3000®-firefly®, is an award-winning reading, writing, and study skills software that enables struggling students, including those with learning differences such as dyslexia and English language learners, to read, understand, and demonstrate their knowledge. Kurzweil 3000-firefly helps learners meet rigorous standards and transforms struggle into success. Anchored in the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), Kurzweil 3000-firefly is an easy, proven solution that ensures instruction and learning become personal—and meaningful progress becomes possible.

The software incorporates text-to-speech technology combined with communication and productivity tools to ease and enhance the reading, writing, and learning experience. Online books, magazines, dictionaries, and encyclopedias become available to empower all readers to pursue their interests.
