 there are a number of different kinds of software for visually impaired use.  
jaws is by far the best screen reader i have found for an individual that can 
nolonger read the print inspite of size. there are some products that magnify 
the screen.  One in particular is zoom text. i am now blind, but for the last 
thirty years i could see enough to still read larger print. Now that i can't, i 
have switched to jaws.  those are just a few of the options.  i am sure that 
there are more.  i hope this was of some help for u.

  I wanted to post this here seeing as this mailing list gets lots of traffick.

  My question is concerning the use of jaws and is the "screen" reader mainly 
used for completely blind individuals or partially sighted individuals?

  I am not a teacher for the blind, so it is interesting to me when a person is 
told due to his or her "lack of vision" jaws will be reccomended. So, the 
question raised here is where would a persons vision need to be at in order to 
use jaws? If someone can read 20 point font or higher would jaws be necessary?

  Any feedback would be appreciated.

  Take care.
