A friend of mine has an eyesight disability.

Are there any apps for magnification of programs on the desktop?

Thanks,
and regards from BlindSight.

Thanks.

My friend isn't completely blind, but has a severe case of myopia, and his glasses can't even get close to seeing the screen from where he's sitting. He has peripheral vision, however.

Any magnification programs?

'To zoom the desktop in.' -BlindSight

Thanks again.

compiz comes with several accessibility functions, zoom is one if them. I have normal site and use it all the time, its great and really simple to use

It might have been residual KDE fragments on my gnome, but compiz crashed my system. Bad.

I'll let BlindSight know there's another program out there.
