Re: [magnifiers] Recommending Accessibility Software
The problem abound Supernova is the price.
If you're not using a Braille hardware connected to your PC you can use Lunar Plus also from Dolphin. Is the same as Supernova without any Braille hardware support.
However even with Lunar Plus, price is still an issue...

Subject: [magnifiers] Recommending Accessibility Software
Hi Emilia and anyone else who may find this useful...
I am also visually impaired and have used a LOT of magnification programs in my time! I would recommend a program called Supernova Access Suite. It is made by a company called Dolphin Computer Access, who specialise in accessibility programs for the visually impaired. They have just released Version 12 of Supernova, which I use at work. It is a magnification/speech program which works very well with windows, office and the internet. It also has a feature called `Multiple Monitors', which allows you to magnify one screen, but have another screen normal size so a fully sighted person can follow what you are doing. This feature also works with presentations.
You can download a free trail at
I work in a school for the visually impaired and we use Supernova throughout the school. I hope this helps!
