Zooming Modes
Different situations warrant different zooming modes. Reading paragraphs is often easier with line zoom, while general web browsing is easier with Full Screen or Lens mode. iZoom supports 8 different zooming modes, ensuring that there’s the perfect zoom mode for any situation you encounter.

Font Smoothing Your computer wasn’t designed to zoom into areas of the screen, which is why all screen magnifiers suffer from a phenomenon known as pixelation. Pixelation causes the edges of text to appear jagged as you zoom in, making text difficult to read. iZoom’s patent-pending ClearPoint font-smoothing will maintain crystal clear text quality regardless of zoom level.

Dual Monitor support iZoom’s dual monitor support allows you to utilize two monitors to expand the area of magnified view. This will give you more information at any given time. Choose from 4 dual monitors options: Single, Stretch, Independent and Original and Magnified.

SmartAlign If you’ve ever used a video magnifier, you know that all the text doesn’t fit on the display at one time, causing you to scroll the table horizontally over and over to read the text. iZoom’s patent-pending SmartAlign technology will re-align the entire paragraph so it fits on the screen with just a mouse click allowing you to be more productive and reduce eye-strain.

Focus Tracking
Since you’re only able to view a portion of the screen while zooming in, there’s bound to be events that happen outside of your viewable area, such as “Would you like to save…” dialog boxes or chat messages which appear out of nowhere. iZoom can automatically figure out the areas of the screen that demand your attention and move your focus to them, ensuring you’re never left in the dark about what happening on your screen.
Mouse Enhancements Even those with perfect vision can lose track of the mouse pointer occasionally. Individuals with vision impairments have a much harder time. That’s why we’ve incorporated mouse enhancements into iZoom. Mouse enhancements can make your mouse larger and even change its color to make it easy to find.

Locator Enhancements For those who have an extra hard time finding the mouse, such as users with tunnel vision, iZoom has several locators which can make life easier. Locators are enhancements which make it easy for even those with severe visual impairments to find the mouse effortlessly.

Floating Window Ever had to keep referring to an area of an email while typing a response? Keeping a sticky note on the screen to make sure you don’t forget a to-do item? With iZoom’s Floating Window you can swiftly lock any area of the screen so it always remains in view, no matter what else you’re doing.

Caret Tracking Imagine you’re typing an email while zoomed in. Since your viewable area is only a small area of the screen, you could type beyond what you can actually see and lose track of what you’re writing. iZoom has built-in caret tracking which will follow whatever you’re typing and keep it in view.

Zoom Scroll Bars While zooming in to a part of the screen, you can lose track of what area of the original screen you’re viewing. This can become rather frustratiing and cause disorientation. We’ve invented a revolutionary technology called Zoom Scroll Bars and incorporated it into iZoom. Zoom Scroll Bars are very similar to scroll bars in a webpage which let you know what part of the webpage you’re viewing. With Zoom Scroll Bars you’ll never lose track of where you are on the screen.

Echo MSN Sign Ins
MSN is used by millions of people worldwide to chat with friends, family and co-workers. MSN displays a sign-in message at the bottom right of the screen when someone on your list logs in. iZoom can automatically speak who logs in even if you’re not looking at the bottom right of the screen where the sign-in message is displayed.

Adjustable Voice Properties
iZoom allows you to configure how fast and how loud to speak. You can change the voice it uses by installing any SAPI5 compatible voice on your system and setting is at your default.

Other Features

No Installation/Administrative access required
We value your independence. Why should you be limited to one computer because of license agreements or other technical reasons? You should be able to use any computer, anywhere, anytime.
Most professional screen magnifiers today offer a USB version, but all of them require administrative privileges to install some software before they can run. Odds are if you’re using a public computer, you won’t be granted installation rights. Moreover, a computer can be a very personal possession and others won’t appreciate you installing software on it. iZoom’s USB version is truly portable. No installation and no administrative access required to get it running. It just works!

Hotkeys
You can change almost any setting in iZoom through shortcut keys on the keyboard, allowing you to be more efficient and productive on the computer.

Auto-Start on Startup iZoom can be configured to automatically start-up when the computer starts.
