The screen magnification in Windows 7 and above underwent a significant facelift. Many users will find they can get along with that featureset but I would say that some will not. Best advice would be for them to try it out before they go spend money.

ASs a blind user, I cannot evaluate the built-in features of recent versions of windows...7 and 8 or similar features in the Mac.
I had the impression a few years ago that, especially in Windows, its magnification features were quite poor. I now have the impression that that is considerably improved.
I'm not sure how to ask my question, but how much should I continue to urge low vision and some LD users to purchase expensive screen mag systems or how much can such people manage with the operating system features???
