JAWS and Magic
If you are visually impaired and struggling by with fixes like screen magnifiers or point and click screen readers that lack much desired magnification, come into the world of JAWS and Magic. The software is expensive (about $700 for Magic and $1400 for JAWS), but it really changed my life. JAWS is a really great screen reader that works with key commands. Magic is a screen magnifier and point & click screen reader program. You can search teh programs through a search engine.

I used to need help performing the simplest tasks, like reading and sending emails. Even though I had finished college before my discovery of JAWS and Magic came along, I felt so hopeless and dependent without the ability to perform the simplest tasks. Vocational Rehab bought the software for me. I would recommend checking there, since it is expensive. Freedom Scientific also lists free webinairs on their site to teach people to use the software.

Thought that was the one, just making sure Smile My entire screen is always magnified, so I don't have a need for it. I'm sure it's helpful though. I remember how magical it was when I first discovered the CTRL + feature for magnification lol
