    Xubuntu and visual impairment users

    Hi,

    I have a friend with view problem. At the moment he is using windows xp with proprietary software that when is activated zoom all with a predefined scale 5x-10x (http://www.yourdolphin.com/index.asp?home=452). Now I have to reinstall his system and since it is and old celeron with 512 Mb of RAM I'm thinking to install xubuntu. I'm looking for free software that are able to zoom the screen. I know orca and that I can change some options in system settings->Universal Access. It's seem that the screen reader functionality does not work at least in my ubuntu 14.04: I cannot see any difference by activating or not it. What do you suggest? I tried also this http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=628741, http://www.magnifiers.org/links/Scre...rs/UNIX_Linux/ What about this http://vinuxproject.org/?
    Thank you
