Dual Screen Reader and Magnifier is a voice output screen reader and screen magnification program designed for use by individuals who are blind or have low vision. This program combines the features of LookOUT Screen Reader and Magnus Screen Enlarger (see also separate entries). The program reads contents of the computer screen, while simultaneously magnifying everything on the screen up to 16 times. The program speaks what the user types, and reads documents, e-mails, web pages aloud. No extra speech synthesizer is required. There are speed, pitch, and volume options for the speech, and the screen colors can be inverted. Magnification can be suspended and restored with a single hotkey. A Novice verbose mode is available for beginners. Navigation is aided by musical tones and an option to set permanent screen markers. The program also features Visual Basic scripting for complex situations. COMPATIBILITY: For use on IBM and compatible computers. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: A fast (at least 800 megahertz (MHz)) multimedia personal computer (PC) or laptop with 128 megabytes (MB) random access memory (RAM); Windows XP, 2000, or NT4 operating system; any sound card and a low-end video card.
