2168Re: [magnifiers] ZoomText 8.03 Released
- Nov 3, 2003Hi Emilia
I also use Win98 but I find zt8 to be too eratic. I mainly use zt7.11. In
particular highlighting or dragging objects(eg in windows explorer) is
hopeless with zt8 and ok with zt7.11. From other comments on this forum it
seems that zt8 works far better with windows xp. I get the impression that
AISquared give greater priority to xp than win98 compatability. So it may
be necessaqry to upgrade to xp to get the benefits of zt8.
