LOW VISION AIDS > Computer Aids

Screen Magnification and Screen Reading software programs are available for visually impaired and blind individuals use a computer efficiently.  Today’s full-featured screen magnifiers can magnify all items on a screen, including the mouse pointer, text cursor, icons, buttons, and title bars.  Speech is offered as an option or upgrade with most systems.   These programs read aloud the text displayed on the screen using a speech synthesizer.

Individuals with functional remaining vision may not need a screen magnification program.  Instead, they may use a larger monitor that allows for larger text or graphics.  There are adjustments that can also be made for font size/style, screen resolution, icon size, color scheme, and mouse size/appearance.  On a Windows operating system these are accessed in the control panel.
