Mike, Fortunately I don't have any problems yet, but it's much easier to magnify the screen than a book. To use a magnifier, at least the ones I've seen, I'm not sure you can see the whole page at once, but even if you can, you have to move the magnifier to each page. The machine my dad's friend has works in some mysterious way--those of you who are partially sighted can probably explain it better than I. It seemed to me, when she tried to demonstrate for me, that one has to put the book in the machine somehow and move it--or maybe the kind of machine she has only does papers. Anyway, the computer, as someone here pointed out to me (I'd never noticed it before and only enlarged the font) has something you can put on the tool bar that will magnify the whole document all the way up to 500%--and, as someone later told me, you can even write in magnification numbers in between the numbers that are already there.
