I have a son who lost his eyesight two years ago. Looking for some software that would allow him to use a computer. Any suggestions?

Does he have a Windows or Mac computer? I would first check the accessibility features on the computer to see if it has some type of screen reader feature. There are various screen reader programs such as Kurzweil & JAWS (for Windows).


Is he completely blind in both eyes? Zoomtext is a screen magnifier that can enlarge anything on the screen.
