>>WADE: Hi! I’m Wade Wingler with the INDATA
Project at Easter Seals Crossroads. Kurzweil 3000 is a great tool for people with learning
disabilities to have better access to information. Here’s one of the advanced features you might
not have known about before.>>CRAIG: Hi I’m Craig, assistive technology
specialist here at Easter Seals Crossroads. Today, the Tech Tip is going to be about Bookmarks.
Specifically, using bookmarks in Kurzweil 3000. Okay, within Kurzweil 3000, at any point
you can place a bookmark. Let’s say in this particular article, that we want to place
a bookmark at this point with this word within. So I come up to tools and I select Bookmarks.
Now, you can see I can Ctrl+F12 if I wanted to use that keyboard method. Or in the newer
software, I can select it from the palette that shows up on the side of the document.
So when I select Bookmarks, it gives me a bookmark I can add, but I don’t want it to
be just the word within, I want it to be something more relative to what I’m studying. So I’m
gonna click on that and I’m gonna say labor unrest and then I can add that. So now you
can see the bookmark is placed, the actual picture of the book, now when I go up to tools
again to retrieve bookmarks, again I can click on the bookmarks or do it the same way I did
before. Now I can say I wanna go to the point where I talk, where I can read about labor
unrest. So I go there and it jumps to that point. Now if my cursor is over here, I can
do the same thing and it jumps back up to here. So even though the first word that it
wanted to highlight was within, I can make it more pertinent to my study materials. And
that’s a way to save time and control where your bookmarks go and how to get access to
them more quickly. That’s your tech tip for today!
>>WADE: So there’s a handy way to make bookmarks right there in Kurzweil 3000. That’s your
tech tip for this week. I’m Wade Wingler, with the INDATA Project at Easter Seals Crossroads
