I would suggest that you also look at ClaroRead. ClaroRead is the reading tool that I know of that allows you to choose which zones to run OCR on. It also has a very simple toolbar, which some users prefer.

I hope everyone has lovely holidays!

Without exception, all of my students chose R&W. Maybe you could do an informal survey to see what most students would prefer.

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!
