E.2 Tips on Using Screen Magnifiers

Examples of screen magnifiers include ZoomText, MAGic, and SuperNova.

  • Screen magnifiers can support both character-based terminals and X-Window-based VNC.

  • If you are using the screen reader function of the screen magnifier (ZoomText screen reader), then you should use a character-based terminal as described above.

  • If you are using a VNC, decide your preference for a window display, for example, TWM or ICE. A display setting for ICE can be done with the following:

    vncserver -geometry 1600x950 :2

    1600x950 specifies the display size, and :2 specifies the VNC display number.
