Greenwich Library now offers the Lightning Magnifier (with Speech) software to persons with low vision. Lightning is a software program "designed to assist with the reading of text on-screen. Whatever appears on the computer screen can be magnified up to 36 times." Plus it also has a special features tool "with options for full screen, magnification, magnifying lens, strip magnifier, vertical and horizontal split screens". A speech tool "will speak all windows menus and dialog boxes, allowing full control of the computer.. (and) gives full speech feedback for most text based word processing tasks including editing documents in Microsoft Word". (Couldn't have said it better myself.)
The Lightning Magnifier can be located at the Kurzweil 1000 public computer on the first floor by the Reference Desk. For more info, contact me.
