Dear Monica,I've been following the thread about Kurzweil and not surprisingly am busy confusing myself. I thought Kurzweil was a scanning program or engine, or are scanning programs and scanning engines the same thing? If Kurzweil is a scanning program, why does it need an omni Page or or Fine Reader scanning engine? Or, if you get Kurzweil, do you need to buy a fine reader or Omni page engine to make it work? And, if you get Kurzweil, is one of the engines found by volunteers to be easier to use or more practical than the other? I'll feel a little more educated if you can explain this, or, if it is computer language I don't need to understand, I'll be content to leave it to the experts. If you can dig me out of this techno hole, I'll appreciate your efforts, but also understand if you don't want to tackle the question because it involves endless strings of details, definitions and lines upon lines of code and stuff like that to be explained that I probably wouldn't understand anyway.

Jamie, Kurzweil is a scanning/reading program for people who are either blind or who have learning disabilities. It is wonderful, but it also costs around a thousand dollars. It's worth it to a person who can't read print, but I imagine sighted people wouldn't find it to be worth the expense. I could be wrong though. :) Kurzweil can use either the FineReader or Omnipage scanning engine, so I think most sighted people would just get one of those programs for a lot less money.Monica Willyard At 12:03 PM 12/27/2006, you wrote:And Kurzweil is a scanning program?
