Re: MAGic and COM

I'm not sure. We definitely know about, and have looked at SayTools. I
forget, but I think it connects to JAWS, but not MAGic. I'll have to
ask download and look again to make sure.

If anything, what we really want to do is make magnification
easier/better in Sodbeans, as we're finding that Sodbeans is working
great for the kids that are non-sighted, but there are a number of
ways that we think we need to improve for the visually impaired
community.

Another possible route we could take is to bypass MAGic altogether and
roll our own magnification system, although I've heard that this is
difficult. Hmm ...
