NATICK, Mass., July 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Kurzweil Educational Systems®, a division of Cambium Learning Technologies, announced today the release of the Kurzweil 3000® - firefly app for the iPad.

"Individuals rely on Kurzweil 3000 every day to enable them to succeed at their level of academic interest. Increasingly our customers have access to iPads, and the firefly iPad app will now give them even more access to the content they are reading and the literacy support tools they rely upon. Whether downloaded to a school or personal iPad, we believe our free app will extend learning on this engaging and mobile platform."
