Very nice,

I especially like the tracking function while writing in a text field, which I lack in the OSX Zoom function where you have to track with the mouse manually (unless I’ve missed something obvious)

Best regards,
Thomas

PS. GDC roundtable notes will be published tomorrow, please be patient as I’m currently catching up with other work

>> Hi Tara! I really appreciated your talk. Glassbrick | screen magnifier is the name of the tool. It is design to help people with vision impairments use PCs but i find it is also quite useful for developing accessible graphics. And for playing games that have hard to see things. The website is www.glassbrick.org and also on Facebook.com/glassbrickMagnifier.Glassbrick completely free and I really let people know about. So if you have any other advice on how to do so I'd love to know.
