Having trouble seeing the computer?

December 22, 2011 | Maureen | Comments (1)

Do you strain to see what’s on your computer screen? Have trouble reading text, recognizing pictures and graphics, or finding what you are looking for?

Screen magnification software called  Zoomtext Magnifier enlarges and enhances everything on the computer screen, making your computer easier to see and use.

You can select from a range of magnification levels from 1X to 36X, and a high visibility mouse pointer to make it easier to see on the screen.   This software with a large print keyboard is available on 1 computer in all branches. Ask staff at your local branch to direct you to this computer.
