Assistive Technology Windows

Magnifier

Operation

The magnifier tool provided by Windows is a great piece of assistive technology that enlarges parts of the computer screen to make the information easier to see. There are three different options for how to use this tool.

Classroom Usage

This tool is useful not only for students with vision disabilities, but also for students looking to "zoom in" on information. If they are presenting information to the class they can use this tool to draw the audience in to a specific piece of a webpage. Also, in this day and age devices are being made smaller and smaller causing eyes to be strained. This tool will help eliminate that issue.
