Well, as to Fonts, I am really grateful to find I can enlarge the type on any page I look at one the internet. I can also enlarge the font on my bowser prefeneces and I have come to copying and pasting to Word and then enlarging that so I can easilt see it.

Tomorrow I see the opthamologist to find out what the problem is. She will probably make a remark about me getting old. That seems the presne answer to everything--your getting old.
$75.00 please!

Bob

Bob,

Have you looked into the tools Microsoft Windows has for visual impairments? One of them is a magnifying glass - when activated it's literally like a m.g. that moves via the mouse around any window/screen on the pc, but this may only come with Windows 2000/XP, I'm not sure. Try looking under Programs>>Accessories>>Accessibility, your version of Windows (you do have Windows???) may have some tools there you can use.

Here are some other links to Visual Tools software:
AI Software Price isn't great but not off reach.
Microsoft Search for Assistive Tools

The Microsoft Accessibility programs, including the magnifier have been available in all versions of Windows since Windows 95, release 2.

For Windows 95 & 98, it was not generally installed by the computer makers, but is included on the Windows CD.

I think it has been installed, by default, since Windows ME - I know it is pre-loaded in all versions of XP that I've seen, and the rarely seen Windows 2000.

Now Where is that CD ??????

I have a Mac. I have found that the browsers have ways to enlarge as big as I want. It is a great help.

Bob,

Safari is Macs own browser, pretty well constructed and should be available as a download or intergrated in OS X.something from any Apple distributor or http://www.apple.com

it takes some getting used to, but it is more stable than any other I know of,

Good luck,

Ethan.
