This page gives you step-by-step instructions on how to launch and use the CloseView Magnifier
The Mac OS includes an optional screen magnification program called ' CloseView ' . If it is not installed on your computer it can be found on the Mac OS CD-Rom: under CD Extras: Universal Access: CloseView
If you do not have access to the Mac OS CD-Rom it is available on the web at:
Apple Macintosh Software Toolkit
The ' CloseView ' magnifier enables text to be increased to a very large size. It is, however, restricted to a small portion of the screen, the area that is magnified is outlined with a black box that follows the mouse pointer.
This page shows you how to start ' CloseView ' and details some of its features.
Open ' CloseView ' using the following steps:
From here you can turn ' CloseView ' on and off, set the magnification scale for example x2, invert the colours of the screen to white text on a black background and turn the ' CloseView ' keyboard shortcuts on and off.
With the ' Keyboard Shortcuts ' on you can use the ' CloseView ' commands from within any program at any time.
Note: If this does not work it could be because your computer settings cannot be changed due to local IT policies - contact your local IT support for further help.
