I think that this is okay to post, but mods, correct me if I am wrong.
I've told some of you about
this already, but I thought others might be interested in this, as I know that some of you have major eye problems too/ know someone who does. The other week my ophthalmologist told me about
this organization -- Lighthouse International -- that created FREE
software called "LowBrowse" for the bind and visually disabled that will enlarge the font and read aloud the text on any webpage
. All you need is the Mozilla Firefox browser, which is also free.
I can say first hand that the program is fantastic. It isn't perfect, but I find it very helpful. I have a bunch of gadgets that enlarge and read text to me, but they are mostly for hard-copy print. The internet is always tough for me to read, even when I enlarge the font, so this program is like gold. For those interested, the program works on both macs and pc's.
Here is the link to the free download:www.lighthouse.org/services-and-assistance/computers-and-technology/computer/lowbrowse/
I hope some of you find this useful!
