We are having an issue with Kurzweil. We utilize Kurzweil 3000 to allow audio-based exams for students who do not need human readers. A student testing discovered that she could access a dictionary feature while testing. We were not aware of this feature as we really only use the program for audio-based exams. The student discovered that by right clicking, the user could see a definition of a word.
If you know a way to disable to this feature, or if Kurzweil has a testing mode. Please let me know. We are using Kurzweil 3000 for windows (standalone none web license)
