Within the Windows version of Kurzweil 3000, you can save the file you want in DAISY in DAISY format, then listen to it and see it on an Apple OS product, using Bookshare's $20 app, Read2Go.
It has to be run from an Apple OS portable device, but I find the advantage is that students can see and hear the text while in transit, and disconnected from the Internet.
We are a commuter campus, so using the one hour plus on the bus or subway is important; crowding, etc. may make computer access difficult, but listening to your reading while viewing your phone is a great way to use the time productively, while benefiting from seeing the text at the same time.
While we have a Web license for Kurzweil, and so use of Firefly .
