Kurzweil 1000 Basics

This section provides an overview of the two ways of using Kurzweil 1000: the keypad and the menus. It explains how to locate important features, and how to get help as you work. The menu system provides access to the complete Kurzweil 1000 feature set, while the keypad provides a subset of the features. Keep this in mind as you decide which method you want to use. Many users opt to learn both as in a number of instances, it is faster to use the keypad.

The Keypad

You can operate Kurzweil 1000 through the numeric keypad on the right-most side of a standard Windows keyboard. The keypad has five rows of keys. The top row has four small keys; the next three rows have three small keys; and the bottom row has one long horizontal key and one small key. The right side of the keypad has two long vertical keys below the first square key in the upper-right corner. If you have a laptop computer, you can also use equivalent functionality on the keyboard. The keys you use may differ from system to system, so check your systems documentation for details. Note: For detailed information about using the keypad, you can either download the document Using the Keypad to Access Kurzweil 1000 from the Kurzweil Educational Systems website, or refer to Appendix E, Using the Keypad to Access Kurzweil 1000 in the Online Manual.
The Menu System and Dialog Boxes
The menu system is the second way you can work with Kurzweil 1000. You can access all of the Kurzweil 1000 features and settings from menus by using a standard keyboard. The menu system provides auditory feedback. Some menu items open dialog boxes. These are special screens that present a features options, also called "controls" throughout Kurzweil 1000. You know that a menu item has a dialog box when the system says, Opens a dialog. Go to Chapter 2, Kurzweil 1000 Menus and Dialog Boxes for detailed information about navigating in menus and dialogs and working with the different types of controls, such as list boxes, combo boxes, and tree views.
Shortcut Keys and Mnemonics
Shortcut keys and mnemonics provide access to menu items using simple keyboard conventions. For a complete list any time you are in Kurzweil 1000, use the Quick Reference from the Help menu (ALT+H, then Q). Shortcut keys are one or two keys that you press to perform an action. For example, CONTROL+X is the shortcut for the Cut menu item. When using two-key shortcuts, hold down the first key while pressing the second key, then release both. The system tells you the shortcuts as you move through a menu. Other shortcut keys exist for features that are not readily accessible from a menu. Mnemonics are letters that represent menu names or items. To use mnemonics, first press the ALT key to go to the menu bar. You do not need to press ENTER after using a mnemonic. For example,

Reading Navigation Tools

This section describes how to access menu items for finding your current place in a document and for moving around in a document using reading units.
Determining Your Place in a Document
Its often helpful to determine where your cursor is located. To find out the current line number, the page number, and the document name, press SHIFT+F1 on the keyboard. If your page has layout information, you can find out the location of the current word in the original scanned document by pressing CONTROL+F1.

Moving by Reading Unit

To read by unit, do one of the following: Open the Read menu and choose Rewind by Unit (ALT+R, then R) or Forward by Unit (ALT+R, then F). Or press F6 for Rewind by Unit; F8 for Forward by Unit.
Reading begins automatically at the new location. You can also skip forward or backward one unit when reading continuously: To skip forward, tap the right SHIFT key or use the F8 key. To skip backward, use the left SHIFT key or F6. To read the current unit, do one of the following: Open the Read menu and choose Read Current Unit, (ALT+R, then C). Or press F7.
Kurzweil 1000 remembers the original layout of a scanned page, although lines may wrap differently on screen, depending on the value of the Line Endings setting in the Reading Settings tab.
When you choose Line as the reading unit, Kurzweil 1000 uses the lines in the original document.

Selecting a Reading Unit

1. Open the Settings menu and choose Reading. The Reading Settings dialog opens with your cursor in the Reading Unit list. Youll hear the current unit setting. 2. Use the UP/DOWN ARROW keys to select the desired unit: You can opt for Line, Sentence, or Paragraph. 3. When you hear the unit you want, press ENTER to accept your selection and close the dialog.
Reading by Alternate Reading Unit
Kurzweil 1000 provides an alternate reading unit. You might want to use the alternate unit as a navigational tool that allows you to move backward or forward more quickly through documents. When the Reading Unit option in the Reading Settings tab is set to anything other than By Paragraph, the alternate unit is By Paragraph. When the reading unit is set to By Paragraph the alternate unit is By Sentence. Use ALT+F6 to rewind by the alternate unit, use ALT+F7 to reread the current alternate unit, and use ALT+F8 to move forward using the alternate unit.

Document Overview Shortcut Keys
SHIFT+F5 starts browsing. The following shortcuts are for Layout Exploration. They are also applicable to table formats elsewhere in Kurzweil 1000. UP or DOWN ARROW moves the cursor one line up or one line down in the current cell or in the cell above or below, respectively. LEFT or RIGHT ARROW moves the cursor from one column to another. HOME moves the cursor to the left-most column in the current row. END moves the cursor to the right-most column in the current row. CONTROL+HOME moves the cursor to the first cell in the table. CONTROL+END moves the cursor to the last cell in the table. F7 reads the contents of the current cell. SHIFT+F7 tells you the contents of the first cell in the current row from anywhere else in the row.

Navigating in Documents

This chapter contains the following topics: Document Navigation Methods. Accessing Navigation Commands. Page Navigation. Cursor Navigation. Bookmarks. Bookmark Navigation. Links. Document Navigation Shortcut Keys.
Document Navigation Methods
Kurzweil 1000 provides multiple document navigation methods: Going to a Specific Page lets you type in the exact number of the page to which you want to go. Going to the Last (cursor) Position allows you to backtrack to 20 of the previous positions where your cursor had been. Going to Bookmarks lets you go to bookmarked text. Links enables you to go to another place in the current document or opens a related file or Web page. In this chapter, we cover navigating a document using the features listed above, as well as their creation or setup.
Accessing Document Navigation Commands
Navigation commands are available from the Navigation menu. You can also use mnemonics or shortcut keys, if available. For the Go to Page command, there is a Reading Keypad key. Note: For more information, you can either download the document Using the Keypad to Access Kurzweil 1000 from the Kurzweil Educational Systems websitewww.kurzweiledu.comor refer to Appendix E, Using the Keypad to Access Kurzweil 1000 in the Online Manual.
Chapter 5. Document Navigation Tools and Methods

The Navigation Menu

The Navigation menu is located after the Read menu and before the Settings menu when a document is open. To open the Navigation Menu: Use one of the following methods: Press ALT, then the RIGHT ARROW key until you hear the name of the menu. To use mnemonics, press ALT+V.

Page Navigation

This section presents information about the Set and Unset User Page Number features, as well as the Go to Page navigation function.
Setting and Unsetting User Page Numbers
By default, Kurzweil 1000 numbers the first page in a scanned or any other KES document as page 1, the next as page 2, and so forth, even if you begin scanning at page 50 of a book. Also by default, it does not take into account different numbering schemes such as those typically used for tables of contents, for example. The Set User Page Number feature lets you assign page numbers. This is helpful for keeping the Kurzweil 1000 document page numbers synchronized with the actual document page numbers. When you set a page number, the system checks to make sure that the new page number does not conflict with other page numbers you have set. These user-defined page numbers must be in ascending order from the beginning to the end of a document. For example, you can change page 10 of a document to page 5, but

To take other actions for a misspelled word: With your cursor in the desired word, press: CONTROL+X to Read Context for the word. CONTROL+L to Spell the word. CONTROL+I to Ignore the word. CONTROL+G to Ignore All instances of the word. CONTROL+A to Add to Word List and your user dictionary. CONTROL+R to Replace All instances of the word with the correction. To create a list of misspelled words: With your cursor in the misspelled words list, press CONTROL+C. The contents of the list are copied to the clipboard, ready for you to paste into another document, which could be in another application. To apply all pending actions and hear updated statistics: Press ALT+Y. The system also regenerates the misspelling list with this command. To exit the Ranked Spelling dialog: Press ALT+Y or ENTER if you want to apply all the actions. Or press ALT+C or ESCAPE if you want to cancel all actions. To leave the Ranked Spelling dialog to review and correct misspellings in the document: Press ALT+E or CONTROL+E to edit the word in the document. Note: While in this mode, you can use the F3 or SHIFT+F3 keys to find the next or previous occurrence of a misspelling, respectively. To return to the Ranked Spelling dialog, press ESCAPE.
Kurzweil 1000 Reference Guide 189
Note: When you return to the dialog, the selected word is either the next misspelled word on the list, or the same word if there are further instances where it is misspelled. More Tips for Working in the Ranked Spelling Dialog Box: By pressing F1 in the list of misspelled words, you can hear what you can do with each word. CONTROL+ L spells the word. CONTROL+ SHIFT + L spells the word mnemonically. F7 or the SPACEBAR repeats the word, the count of the number of times it occurred in the document and the action that is pending for it, if any. You can search the list of words by pressing CONTROL+F. In the find dialog that opens, type in a word or partial word, then press ENTER to search the list. Kurzweil 1000 reads the first item it finds. Press F3 to move to the next matching item, and SHIFT+F3 to move to the previous match.
Setting Spell Check Properties for Ranked Spelling
The Spell Check Properties dialog contains options that control the way Kurzweil 1000 handles prefixes and suffixes, words with special capitalization, and words that contain numeric characters. To access the dialog, first choose Check Spelling from the Tools menu (ALT+O+K) to open the Spell Checker dialog, and then press ALT+P to open the Spell Check Properties dialog. Note: The Properties dialog is also used by the Spell Check function. Kurzweil 1000 uses any Properties options you set for Ranked Spelling for Spell Check, and vice versa.
To ignore special words: 1. In the Ranked Spelling dialog, press ALT+P to open the Properties dialog. The dialog opens with the Capitalized list selected. 2. Use the UP/DOWN ARROWS to choose Ignore for the any following types of words you dont want spell checked: Capitalized (ALT+Z) for words with initial capitalization. All Caps (ALT+P). for words composed of all capital letters, such as acronyms. Partial Numbers (ALT+N) for words with both alpha and numeric characters. By default, Kurzweil 1000 checks all words of these types. 3. Press ENTER to close the Properties dialog. 4. After exiting the Properties dialog, press ALT+P to apply the changes, and regenerate the list of misspelled words. This removes any capitalized Properties dialog. To ignore user-specified prefixes and suffixes: You can direct the Ranked Spelling to ignore prefixes and suffixes included on lists you create. 1. In the Spell Checker dialog, press ALT+P to open the Properties dialog. 2. Press ALT+X to move the cursor to the Prefixes text box, or press ALT+S to move the cursor to the Suffixes text box. 3. Type a prefix or suffix you want the Spell Checker to ignore. You might want to add a prefix such as "http:" to the list. For suffixes, you might want to add ".com".

Table Identification Setting
Documents sometimes contain tables, and Kurzweil 1000 is able to read them as a table, allowing navigation by cell, and automatically reading the appropriate headings for the cell. If the table formatting was not identified correctly, this can occasionally be problematic. You can, as a consequence, disable this feature here. Note that if you modify a page that contained a table when this feature is disabled, and you later save the document, when you read it later it will no longer have a table, even if this setting has been re-enabled.

Line Endings Setting

The Line Endings feature determines what the Kurzweil 1000 editor does with the original line endings in a scanned document. They may be Respected or Ignored. If Line Endings are ignored, then paragraphs are used to determine how text is positioned in an editing window. The number of lines in a paragraph becomes a function of the width of the editor window, the size of the font, and the length of the words. When a word wont fit because it is too close to the right margin, it becomes the first word on the next line. This approach is normal for word processors, because it is very convenient when you are composing or editing. If you change the setting so that line endings are Respected, the original line endings from the scanned document are used to establish the end of each line in the document. It no longer matters if the words dont actually fit in the window, as the text will scroll horizontally in the window. From the perspective of the editor, each line is now also a single line paragraph. Each real end of paragraph mark is doubled, so that there is a blank line after the end of each paragraph. However, commands that would normally work on a
Kurzweil 1000 Reference Guide 241
paragraph, such as paragraph editing, or forward/rewind by unit when the unit is set to a paragraph, will now behave as though each line was a paragraph. You can change this setting whenever you wish and all open files will alter their behavior based on the setting. Why would you want to do this? Because sometimes you might want to pay careful attention to the original line endings. You might find this appropriate when you scan and read Poetry, computer code, or forms. The effect of this command varies depending upon the type of file you are reading. Word processor documents such as Word, Word Perfect, and RTF, dont contain end of line information. Each paragraph will end up stretched on a very long line, wrapping only when it hits the maximum width of the editor itself. Text documents, on the other hand, usually have either end of line information or end of paragraph information, but not both. Use of this feature for most text documents will give you pretty much what you would get if you were to open the text document in a text editor, such as Notepad or Wordpad. Scanned documents (KES files), typically contain both line endings and paragraph endings, both from the original scanned document.

Text Format

If you want to open your documents in other applications but are not sure what format to use, the best choice may be plain ASCII text. An ASCII text file contains just unformatted characters. This is a good choice if, for example, you want to run the file through a textto-Braille conversion program, or paste the text of the document into an e-mail message. You can also open ASCII files in most word processors, although such files do not have any formatting information. An ASCII file has a name followed by a period and the letters TXT, such as Mineral.txt.

HTML Format

Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is the file format used for World Wide Web pages. There are couple of situations in which you may want to save your file in this format: If you intend on using the file for Web access. Or as a study tool or a dynamic table of contents if you have embedded multi-level bookmarks in the document. In this case, when you save the file in HTML format, Kurzweil 1000 extracts the bookmark descriptions and converts them into live links. By selecting the link, you can go directly to the text which has been bookmarked. For more information about multi-level bookmarks, go to Chapter 5, Document Navigation Tools and Methods. An HTML file has a name followed by a period and the letters HTM, such as Story.htm.

DAISY Format

DAISY is the leading international standard format that libraries for the disabled use. It supports digital text, recorded speech, indexing and bookmarking. DAISY file names are followed by a period and the letters OPF. When you download DAISY files to Kurzweil 1000, the program preserves page bookmarks for your navigation convenience. You can have Kurzweil 1000 read downloaded DAISY files, but you cannot edit or overwrite them. You can also save any type of file as a text-only DAISY (version 3.0) file. Kurzweil 1000 preserves text along with Bookmarks, Links, Notes and tables.
Note: You can also save documents as DAISY audio files using the Create Audio File utility. To use this utility, choose Utilities from the File menu, and then choose Create Audio File (ALT+F+U+T). For more information, go to Chapter 14, File Portability.

Other Available Formats

In addition to the formats described in the previous section, Kurzweil 1000 supports the following formats: Braille, Grade 2. MS Excel 5.0. MS Word for Windows. WordPerfect for Windows 6.1. To hear additional file formats, select Other in the File dialogs Format box. Kurzweil 1000 supports over 100 other formats.

Shortcut Keys for File Management
Attribute (mnemonic A) which tells you whether the folder is a normal or read-only folder. You can select Normal to enable editing in the file or select Read Only to disable editing in the file. The DOS Name (mnemonic D) for the file.
CONTROL+SHIFT+O to open a text file from a floppy disk. CONTROL+SHIFT+S to save the current document as a text file onto a floppy disk. CONTROL+SHIFT+D to delete a text file from a floppy disk. CONTROL+SHIFT+A to open a KES file from the current folder. CONTROL+SHIFT+H to save the current document as a KES file into the current folder. CONTROL+SHIFT+T to save the current document as a text file into the current folder. CONTROL+SHIFT+E to delete a KES file from the current folder.
Working with More Than One Document
You can open more than one document file at a time either by choosing Open from the File menu. When you open multiple documents, you can read or edit only one document at a time, the active document. In addition, you can scan into only one document at a time, the scanning document. The active document and the scanning document can be the same document, or different documents. This allows you to scan and read in separate documents at the same time. If you exit with multiple documents open, the system checks for documents that need to be saved, and asks you about them one by one (unless AutoLoad is enabled). If you use the keyboard shut down or power off commands, the system will warn you if you should save any open documents. If the system crashes while multiple documents are open, a restore operation will restore all of them with their correct names and formats.
Changing the Default Folder

Moving Among Documents

The Window menu, located immediately to the left of the Help menu, enables you to move among documents. The mnemonic for the Window menu is ALT+W. The items on this menu are: Next Document. There are two shortcuts you can use for this command: CONTROL+F6 or CONTROL+TAB. Previous Document. You can also use (shortcut CONTROL+SHIFT+F6 or CONTROL+SHIFT+TAB. File list, containing all the documents you have open. The mnemonic for each document name is its number in the list, so the first document has the mnemonic 1, the second has the mnemonic 2, and so on. The names appear in the order in which the files were opened. As you move among documents, Kurzweil 1000 announces the name of the current active document.

When Kurzweil 1000 starts for the first time, its default folder is the General folder beneath the Kurzweil Educational Systems folder, in My Documents. When you save a settings file, Kurzweil 1000 also saves the path of the current folder. Because it uses that path only at startup time, the folder setting will have an effect only when it is in the default settings file. To have Kurzweil 1000 always come up in a particular folder, make that folder the current folder. Save settings, specifying default as the settings file name. When you start from then on, it will be in that folder. For details on saving settings files, go to Chapter 12, Working with Settings.
Working with File Utilities
The File menus Utilities submenu (mnemonic U) has three items if no files are open, eight additional items if files are open. The three that are always available are listed first: Copy (mnemonic C). Move (mnemonic M). Merge and Open (mnemonic G). Extract Image (mnemonic E). Extract All Images (mnemonic X). Remove Image from Page (mnemonic R). Remove All Images from File (mnemonic I). Remove Layout Information from File (mnemonic L). Remove Page Headers and Footers (mnemonic H). Create Audio Files (mnemonic T). Audio Spooler Monitor (mnemonic O). Convert Bookmarks to Notes (mnemonic V). This section provides information for all but the last three items on the Utilities submenu. For information about audio files and the Audio Spooler Monitor, go to Chapter 14, File Portability. For more on converting bookmarks to notes, go to Chapter 5, Document Navigation Tools and Methods.

Copying Files

Copy lets you specify any number of files, or a single folder, to be copied (the source). It then presents the File dialog box for you to select a destination. If you are copying a single file, you can specify a file name, or a folder into which the file should be copied. If you do not specify an extension for the destination file, the extension of the source file is used. If you are copying multiple files, or a folder, you must specify a folder as the destination. The folder need not exist; Kurzweil 1000 will create it if necessary. As the copy proceeds, the system tells you if a file will be overwritten, and asks if youd like to continue. You can answer Yes, No, All, or Cancel by tabbing to the appropriate button or by pressing its mnemonic. If you choose No (mnemonic N), the copy continues without overwriting that particular file. If you choose Yes (mnemonic Y), the file is overwritten. If you choose All (mnemonic A), the file is overwritten, and you will not be asked again if some other file exists which will be overwritten by the same operation. If you choose Cancel (mnemonic C), the operation stops, although some files may have already been copied. Any file error, such as trying to copy a read-only file, a read-only disk, or a full disk, will terminate the copy operation with an error message. This Copy utility is more powerful than the DOS copy operation, in that you can copy folders, and all of the subfolders under a folder, in one operation. You could copy everything under C:\My Documents to another folder, for example. You can even copy

Keypad Layers

Kurzweil 1000 uses keypad layers to provide access to a wide array of functions and features. There are three main layers: Reading, File Management and Settings. Switching between layers: Hold down the Shift key (the horizontal key in the lower-left corner of the keypad) and tap the Accept key (the small key in the upperright corner of the keypad) until you hear the name of the layer you want. Keep holding down the Shift key as you cycle through the layers. In addition, each keypad layer has a sub layer, or Shifted layer, with additional functions. To access a keypad sub layer, hold down the Shift key and a key on the keypad. For instance, after you press the Shift Accept combination to get to the File Management main keypad, press Shift and the number 2 key to get to its sub layer; this key combination saves your file in export format.
Layer 1: The Reading Keypad
The Reading keypad is the default layer when you start up Kurzweil 1000, and is the keypad you use for scanning, reading and moving around in a document. With this keypad, you can change the reading speed or volume and access the dictionary and thesaurus. This keypad has two configurations: Kurzweil 1000 and a Screen Reader compatible one. Both provide access to many reading commands, as well as document navigation functions and dictionary lookup. If you prefer to use the Screen Reader keypad, you must select the ScreenReader option in the Configuration Settings tab page first, then press SHIFT+Accept from the keypad until you hear, "ScreenReader Keypad."
Layer 2: The File Management Keypad
Use the File Management keypad to create and delete the folders that store your Kurzweil 1000 documents, and to move between folders. You can open, close, and delete document files, and save files in other formats.
Layer 3: The Settings Keypad
The Settings keypad lets you customize the Kurzweil 1000 environment. In this keypad layer, you can change the reading voice for documents, or change the system voice that reads prompts and messages. You can also change some scanning options.

Saving a File with its Name and Format
To save a document with its current name and format, press Save File (first key in row 4) in the File Management keypad, and press Accept to confirm the file save. Saving a File with another Name or Format To save a file in Kurzweil 1000 format: Press the Save key (the first key in row 4) in the File Management keypad. The first time you press Save, Kurzweil 1000 prompts you
to press the Accept key to save the file with its current name, or to press the Save key again to rename the file. Press the Save key, then use the keypad or keyboard to enter any file name you want. Go to the subsection, Naming Files and Folders, further along in this document for information about entering a file name using the keypad. To save a document as a text file: Press the Save As key (the second key in row 4). Save As also allows you to rename the file. The Save As key saves the file to the current folder. To save to a different folder, change folders before saving. To save a document in the export format you have selected: Press SHIFT+Save As key (second one in row 4). If you have not chosen a format using the Export Format key, the default save format is RTF. These keys also allow you to rename the file.

Naming Files and Folders

When you save or rename a file, or when you create a folder, you must supply a name. You can use the keypad to enter the name without any need for typing on the full keyboard. Certain keypad keys correspond to letters and digits. Across row 2, the first key represents the letters A through E, the next key represents F through J, and the third key represents K through O. Across row 3, the keys represent P through T, then U through Z, then 0 through 4. Across row 4, the keys represent 5 through 9, Space, and Backspace.
