Wow Dorothy, that's quite the response to a simple question. My advice, to just make your life a lot less stressful, would be to just use Jaws. Learn to use speech as it is intended to work, and turn off the bloody screen.

Hi, I will answer you I am I agree listening more than looking, if I do look Magnification is no help I do not use the Magnification features of Lunar, I need the dark screen which is what many need, other products I am told like supernova and Wineyes are able to do this, but at the time I bought no one expected Jaws not to, Magic was put on and the effects were hilarius, and put on by Chief technicians!, what did Magic do? well assuming the person putting it on was sober, large prinnt and strange figures came on from the right of the screen, upside down! looking like under water sea monsters, I was astonished they put it on and of and on again ,until I had vertigoe, and had to hang on to my computer chair, it sounds like a farce and it was, one bright man who shall be nameless but was studding IT, for his Phd, had a look over some information I did not get to see myself,he explained why someone
named  Eric Damery's suggested remedy
would not work and why it was based on
false assumptions by Fs, in a nutshell, Jaws sees white font on black screen as highlighted or selected print and does not therefore see it normally, what did Jaws do? It did not see or interpret what was on the screen correctly, Magic made it worse, I have the costly itemin a box, the print floated off on left of screen and came in again on the right side,, a whole list of people attempted to do
some awful settings got by an Fs support in Germany who got them
from Florida, no one could make them work, then one bright gifted young man spotted my problem and he knew when he was at his training school for vips he had seen Lunar invert the screen to High contrast black, it does work,but now I shallbe moving to windows 7 andhave bought a new Dell computer with best specs I could find, I wanted to know from fs Head office wwell kind sirs, do I still have to go on doing this yes or no,all I want is one clear and honest answer,not a lot to ask in my opinion, the evasiveness that is what angers me. I even tried to pay a local Engineer who once worked for a firm of electronicsCompany to solve it by making a "switching box, however that is another story, so I have tried and will not give up, or move to another screen reader,had I known at the start of course I would,do you think I
liked being put through the mill? Dorothy

Dorothy, have you considered just using Jaws without the screen as backup?
Or alternatively, a large print program without Jaws running in the
background?
