This page (http://www.ubuntu.com/products/whatisubuntu/accessibility) from the official Ubuntu site indicates that Orca has full-screen magnification. I can't get that to work. The larger I make the magnified view, the less space I have to work with applications. How do you enable full screen magnification?

Hi RCC2k7,

To enable full-screen magnification you can read http://www.gnome.org/learn/access-guide/latest/sysadmin-6.html

Yes, this a bit nasty to execute, so we are implementing other kind of full-screen magnification, but this was not ready for Festy (GNOME 2.18 ). The problem was corrected here http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=416911. Probably this will be released for GNOME 2.18.2.

Hope this help and best regards,
Carlos.

Thanks. I tried the first link and my X server died - good thing I made a backup of the xorg.conf file. I guess I'll have to wait for the new solution then.
