It's still as buggy as it's been for a while now. It's rather helpful sometimes, but it sometimes interferes with other extensions and programs, especially Google Docs (when I'm not even trying to use Kurzweil!) I can look past the way it mispronounces things because I'm sighted and can read what it's reading, but I can imagine that being a big problem for people with vision issues. My bigger problem is that I can't get rid of it when I don't need it and I can't get it to work when I want it... Show more

The app is supposed to work with the Kurzweill 3000 and at first I liked it but there are so many issues with this app. I hve to uninstall when i am finished using it and everytime I need the screen to read for me it glitches.

At first, I really liked the extension. It was working for me. A couple of months ago, though, it started acting up. It will glitch when I enable the extension, not allowing me to press any of the buttons, so I can't make it read. If the buttons do work, sometimes it reads, other times it just highlights text and doesn't move the cursor from there. The Kurzweil cursor also randomly appears even though the extension is disabled.

I didn't download this extension, my school did. The login thing just popped up on my school account a few days ago, and it is so damn annoying. I saw someone complaining about this years ago, how come they still haven't fixed it yet? I don't need this, but I can't remove it because my account is managed by the school. All I can do is move it to the less prominent upper left corner... And yes, I can't comment with my school account. I downloaded this extension using my personal account just t... Show more

This extension has been frustrating me for months; it took me that long to figure out that when this extension is installed, it will randomly move my typing cursor to the beginning of a text box after I've already started typing. I'd end up typing words like "isTh" instead of "This." The accessibility features of this app are on their way, but it is really painful and limited in its use as of now. The voices are probably the best thing about this; "Peter" is a decent voice to listen to. Ho... Show more

I love Kurzweil 3000 but there some things it needs work on. Certain words or phrases such as $500 billion, M1, and so on. Doesn't know how to pronounce "$500 billion", "$500" and "billion" are pronounced separately. When it's supposed to be pronounced as "$5,000,000,000". "M1" is pronounced as Milliliters, which supposed to pronounced as "M-one". I have an idea to the solution, then program would be worth it's value. How about there is scanner to read to the pdf's or site. So that way there'... Show more
