Dynamic screen zooming for Windows XP
March 9, 2004 5:01 AM   Subscribe

There's a cool feature in OS X that permits dynamic screen zooming. it looks gorgeous (it's part of Universal Access - a part of the system specifically for people with visual/aural disabilities).

I'm looking for a similar ability on XP - I need to be able to dynamically zoom in on some small widgets during a presentation.

The reason Mac OS X has this feature is its very slick graphics foundation, quartz (and quartz extreme) which allow for the smooth manipulation of the desktop graphics. There really isn't an equivalent program on Windows with anywhere near the level of just plain slickness that OS X's magnifier has, even commercial screen magnification software is still very clunky by comparison.
