Thank you, Stephen.

I did ask the student for more information over the weekend and hope to have a better understanding of what is and isn't working and which program he is using, etc. Thanks again!

Hi Shannon

It would be helpful to know what flavor of Linux he is using but Ubuntu distros have a magnifier. Here are instructions on how to access its options. In my experience, it does not work with all desktop environments but regular Ubuntu seems to work fine as far as I can tell.

I have a student using a Linux computer for research. He is using the Linux magnification (he did not specify and I do not have access to the computer to identify it) and it is not working well enough for him. What type of magnification programs are available for Linux? I know this student uses a color contrast option too but he did not mention it so it may be working well but if you know of color contrast options as well, please share.

Thank you!
