    Same functionality as ZoomText : not a screen with a magnifier but all the screen magnified. But Free, fast and with shortcut. Perfect.

    Functionality is not comparable. Zoomtext does much more than simply magnify a section of a screen like a magnifying glass or provide magnification to a locked, fixed area. This has little useful functionality for low vision users.

      An image magnifier or resizer has such limited scope and functionality that it should never be considered an alternative to Zoomtext. Functionality is not comparable. This cannot help users with low vision access a computer.
