Both are good products. On our campus, I used to have all three products, Kurzweil 3000, WYNN, and Read&Write. I trained all students in all three and then let them choose their favorite. Without exception, all of my students chose R&W. Maybe you could do an informal survey to see what most students would prefer.

I’m looking for comparisons of Read&Write Gold and Kurzweil 3000. If your institution has provided both, which is preferred? Our campus currently provides RWG on all lab computers and also offers it for download for personal computers on our campus. Our Student Disability Services reports that some students are struggling with RWG and prefer Kurzweil 3000 that they used in high school. Any guidance is appreciated!
