The Screen Magnifiers Homepage is a non-profit independen organization. We do not sell any products or services.
We are the leading resource for magnification solutions information on the Internet.

Screen magnifiers are developed for people with low vision.
Screen magnifiers can magnify the contents of the logical computer screen from 2 until unlimited times. Most magnification programs offer a maximum magnification to 16 times.
On the physical computer screen, you get a portion of the normal screen.
You can view the whole screen by scrolling over the screen using the mouse or the keyboard. While moving the mouse the information on the screen changes.
The screen magnifiers are specially developed for people with low vision, who can not read on a normal screen. This group is relatively small. Maybe that is the reason why most screen magnification software is expensive.
In some countries you can get the software paid for you by the government or a social health organization. But this is not the case in all countries.

On this site you will find information about screen magnifier software for MS-DOS, Microsoft Windows, OS/2, Macintosh UNIX and Linux.

If you want to know the last news about screen magnifier software and about this site, select the News option in the menu.

If you want to read reviews on screen magnifiers for Windows, select Reviews, in the menu.
All reviews are the result of testing the screen magnifier software by myself.
You find reviews on Big-w, LunarPlus, Magic, Magnum and ZoomText Xtra.

If you want to try a screen magnifier yourself, select the Download option in the menu.
On the download page you find a number of FREEWARE and SHAREWARE screen magnifiers and demos of professional screen magnifiers.
On the download page you can also download some alternative mouse software, screen review utilities and Text-to-Speech software.

If you are looking for other FREEWARE PROGRAMS visit Jans Freeware Collection.

If you want to read reviews on Text-To-Speech software and download demo programs of these software, select Speech in the menu.
The Text-To-Speech software on the speech page, do not need any additional hardware. The only thing you need is a sound blaster card.

To make computers, software, information and the Internet accessible for everybody in this world, more has to be done than producing accessibility features like screen magnifiers.
Software developers, webpage designers and governments have also a responsibility. Select the Accessibility option in the menu and read about how to make the wordl accessible in Peter's accessibility corner.

If you do not agree with information on this page, or you have any suggestions or comments, please let me know it and send E-Mail to magnifiers@magnifiers.org, or click in the menu on the E-Mail link.
