The Shelter Island Public Library installed Zoomtext software on two of the computers in the adult computer area. Zoomtext is software designed for those with visual impairments like macular degeneration and glaucoma. It is a powerful screen magnifier and screen reader that makes the computer easier to see, hear, and use.
Zoomtext enlarges and enhances everything on your computer screen, making all applications easy to see and use. The revolutionary new ‘xFont’ technology displays crystal-clear text at all magnification levels.
This service is made possible by the generous donation from Mitch Shapiro and the Foundation for Sight and Sound. In March 2010, The Foundation for Sight and Sound also donated the library’s CCTV magnification system and flat screen monitor.
Anyone interested in using the new software should visit the library or call 749-0042 for more information.
