Windows 8 – What’s In It For Boomers?
My Favorite Windows 8 Feature: Magnification
By Bonnie Kearney, Director of Accessibility & Aging Marketing at Microsoft.
By now, you’ve probably all seen the new Windows 8 operating system which looks very different from anything you’ve ever seen before. It is beautiful, fast, and fluid, bringing together your websites, people, apps, and more, so everything you care about is right on your Start screen.
Despite how much I enjoy the new look and feel of Windows 8, and the slick touch enabled environment, my favorite enhancement is in the magnification feature, called Magnifier. Magnifier is a feature that enlarges your screen, or portions of your screen, making words and images easier to see. For users with low vision who have trouble seeing their devices, Magnifier makes it easier to see the screen. Whether I need to give my eyes a break near the end of a day’s work, or want to zoom in on some fabric I’m looking at online for a weekend project, Magnifier is my favorite Windows 8 feature, just waiting for me whenever I need it.
