Several students on Purdue’s campus use Kurzweil 3000 and Read & Write Gold on their own computers, either Windows or Macintosh. These programs require connection to a server on Purdue’s campus to work. This connection is easy to make
on campus through PAL (Purdue Air Link). There is one more step to the process when using either Kurzweil 3000 or Read & Write Gold from off campus. Users must launch VPN (Virtual Private Networking) before launching either Kurzweil
3000 or Read & Write Gold. Information on using VPN can be found at http://webvpn.purdue.edu. Technical assistance with using VPN can be found at the ITaP Customer Service Center (http://www.itap.purdue.edu/help/).
