iZoom low vision Magnifier and Reader USB incorporates our latest Magnification and Speech technology, but it's not locked down to a machine! You can attach it to your keychain and take it with you anywhere you go. All your settings are saved on the USB drive so you don't have to reconfigure it on every new machine. It'll work on any Windows XP/Vista machine. You simply plug it in and it starts up. No installation, no administrative access, no license agreements, no hassles. It simply works! So the next time you get on a machine at your library, school, a friend's place, you can relax knowing that their machine isn't affected and you can use it as freely as you would your own.
iZoom can magnify your screen from as little as 1.5X all the way up to 36X. Our new fractional magnification technology allows 1.5X and 2.5X magnification levels, so you can pick the setting that works best for you.
Different situations warrant different zooming modes. Reading paragraphs is often easier with line zoom, while general web browsing is easier with Full Screen or Lens mode. iZoom supports 8 different zooming modes, ensuring that there's the perfect zoom mode for any situation you encounter.
Don't like the glare from white background on webpages? Colour Blind? iZoom can manipulate the colours on the screen in dozens of ways so it doesn't strain your eyes.
Your computer wasn't designed to zoom into areas of the screen, which is why all screen magnifiers suffer from a phenomenon known as pixelation. Pixelation causes the edges of text to appear jagged as you zoom in, making text difficult to read. iZoom's patent-pending ClearPoint font-smoothing will maintain crystal clear text quality regardless of zoom level.
If you've ever used a video magnifier, you know that all the text doesn't fit on the display at one time, causing you to scroll the table horizontally over and over to read the text. iZoom's patent-pending SmartAlign technology will re-align the entire paragraph so it fits on the screen with just a mouse click allowing you to be more productive and reduce eye-strain.
Since you're only able to view a portion of the screen while zooming in, there's bound to be events that happen outside of your viewable area, such as "Would you like to save..." dialog boxes or chat messages which appear out of nowhere. iZoom can automatically figure out the areas of the screen that demand your attention and move your focus to them, ensuring you're never left in the dark about what happening on your screen.
Even those with perfect vision can lose track of the mouse pointer occassionally. Individuals with vision impairments have a much harder time. That's why we've incorporated mouse enhancements into iZoom. Mouse enhancements can make your mouse larger and even change its color to make it easy to find.
For those who have an extra hard time finding the mouse, such as users with tunnel vision, iZoom has several locators which can make life easier. Locators are enhancements which make it easy for even those with severe visual impairments to find the mouse effortlessly.
Ever had to keep referring to an area of an email while typing a response? Keeping a sticky note on the screen to make sure you don't forget a to-do item? With iZoom's Floating Window you can swiftly lock any area of the screen so it always remains in view, no matter what else you're doing.
Imagine you're typing an email while zoomed in. Since your viewable area is only a small area of the screen, you could type beyond what you can actually see and lose track of what you're writing. iZoom has built-in caret tracking which will follow whatever you're typing and keep it in view.
Zoom Scroll Bars
While zooming in to a part of the screen, you can lose track of what area of the original screen you're viewing. This can become rather frustratiing and cause disorientation. We've invented a revolutionary technology called Zoom Scroll Bars and incorporated it into iZoom. Zoom Scroll Bars are very similar to scroll bars in a webpage which let you know what part of the webpage you're viewing. With Zoom Scroll Bars you'll never lose track of where you are on the screen.
Dual Monitor support
iZoom's dual monitor support allows you to utilize two monitors to expand the area of magnified view. This will give you more information at any given time. Choose from 4 dual monitors options: Single, Stretch, Independent and Original and Magnified.
CCTV compatible for more flexibility.
In addition to screen magnification, iZoom will read on-screen events such as Windows, Message Boxes, Tooltips etc. to help you keep track of what's happening on the screen
Mouse echo will automatically read text you point your mouse to such as paragraphs on webpages, emails and more.
Typing echo will reinforce what you're typing auditorily by speaking letters, words or lines based on your preferences.
Gives your eyes a break. Sit back and relax while iZoom speaks out entire web pages, emails and word documents to you with just the click of a button.
Echo MSN Sign Ins
MSN is used by millions of people worldwide to chat with friends, family and co-workers. MSN displays a sign-in message at the bottom right of the screen when someone on your list logs in. iZoom can automatically speak who logs in even if you're not looking at the bottom right of the screen where the sign-in message is displayed.
Adjustable Voice Properties
iZoom allows you to configure how fast and how loud to speak. You can change the voice it uses by installing any SAPI5 compatible voice on your system and setting is at your default.
No Installation/Administrative access required
We value your independence. Why should you be limited to one computer because of license agreements or other technical reasons? You should be able to use any computer, anywhere, anytime.
Most professional screen magnifiers today offer a USB version, but all of them require administrative privileges to install some software before they can run. Odds are if you're using a public computer, you won't be granted installation rights. Moreover, a computer can be a very personal possession and others won't appreciate you installing software on it. iZoom's USB version is truly portable. No installation and no administrative access required to get it running. It just works!
You can change almost any setting in iZoom through shortcut keys on the keyboard, allowing you to be more efficient and productive on the computer.
Auto-Start on Startup
iZoom can be configured to automatically start-up when the computer starts.
