Did you know that Windows has a built in magnifier? Hi, I'm Vikki Vaughan and together we'll take a look at this handy tool. We'll locate it, as well as see how to turn it on and off using both keyboard commands and the mouse. We'll see how to use magnify to zoom in for a closer look and talk about the three viewing modes we can choose from. Finally, we will have a look at one of Window's coolest features, the centered magnifier.
For many people with low vision, the magnifier is their go-to tool for computer access. With a simple command, we can easily enlarge items on the screen to find the applications we want, create and edit documents and navigate websites. We can use keyboard shortcuts to choose whatever magnification level we need for a particular task.
Ed Haines: Now that you’ve had a chance to learn a bit with us, we’d like to learn more about you; your name, email address, how you heard about Hadley and your relationship to vision loss.
Learning more will give us a better understanding of how to personalize Hadley just for you. And don’t worry, everything you share with us online will be kept safe and secure. Of course, if you’d prefer to talk through these questions, we’re just a phone call away at 800-323-4238.
Taking these few steps saves your preferences so you can continue right where you left off and track your progress every time you log on. Plus it connects you to the Hadley community, and helps sustain our funding to keep Hadley free of charge.
And last but not least, it gives you direct access to experts, like me. Now, where were we?
