ZoomText with Kurzweil: Expired license and/or license verification error

PROBLEM

If ZoomText and Kurzweil (1000 or 3000) are installed on the same computer, ZoomText speech may say "Your license has expired" or "You do not have a valid license verification file. This version is strictly for demonstration purposes only."

This problem is due to ZoomText and Kurzweil installing different versions of NeoSpeech synthesizers.

SOLUTION

There are a couple of ways to resolve this issue.

First method:

  1. Uninstall ZoomText.
  2. Reinstall ZoomText, and select the Custom installation.
  3. In the section for installing the speech synthesizers, uncheck the checkbox to install the NeoSpeech synthesizers and click the Next button. (This way ZoomText should be able to use the NeoSpeech synthesizers from Kurzweil.)
  4. Follow the rest of the onscreen instructions and reboot the PC when prompted.
  5. Start ZoomText.

Second method (it is best to do this method with ZoomText off if possible):

  1. Insert your ZoomText CD or ZoomText USB and forgo the auto play or cancel out of the ZoomText installation process.
  2. Go into My Computer in XP or Computer in Vista and Windows 7.
  3. Find the drive that has the ZoomText CD or ZoomText USB in it.
