There is also a Kurzweil 3000 computer station, equipped with ZOOM TEXT and JAWS for Windows. This unit has closed circuit television (CCTV) and a built in camera. With Optical Character Recognition (OCR), an image can be scanned and changed into text. The text is then "read" and the audio can be accessed through attached speakers or through earphones available at the Reference Desk. Some information can be saved to a 3 1/2" floppy disk or USB Flash Media.
A Braille Display unit is also available. This display can connect to the Kurzweil 1000 station. Inquire at the Reference Desk.
