ZoomText 11 is released

ZoomText-magnifier-reader-boxMarch 13, 2017: Ai Squared announced the release of ZoomText® version 11 for Windows, the world’s premier magnification and reading software for the visually impaired. Significant new features include:

  • New modern toolbar with simplified controls and complete keyboard accessibility.
  • New unified AppReader for easier reading of documents, web pages and email
  • New unified Finder for fast location of words and topics of interest
  • New Geometric Smoothing for the smooth magnified text in more applications
  • New Smart Invert for viewing photos in their natural colors against inverted backgrounds
  • New keyboard commands that are easier to operate and free of conflicts with other apps
  • Greatly improved interoperability with JAWS 18 (from Freedom Scientific)

“ZoomText 11 is all about ease of use and increased productivity” says Scott Moore, Ai Squared’s Vice President of Marketing. “All of the core features have been streamlined and refined to make ZoomText easier to learn, easier to operate and seamless to the workflow of any task.”

With the addition of Ai Squared to the VFO family earlier this year, a top priority for the release of ZoomText 11 and JAWS 18 (a full screen reader from Freedom Scientific) was interoperability between the two products.

“Helping our customers who need to use ZoomText and JAWS at the same time is a top priority now” says Eric Damery, Freedom Scientific’s Vice President of Software Product Management. “We want to make sure that users of ZoomText have the best experience when running alongside JAWS.

ZoomText is available in three versions— ZoomText Magnifier, ZoomText Magnifier/Reader and ZoomText Fusion, with the software available on CD, USB and download from the ZoomText website: www.zoomtext.com. ZoomText 11 supports Windows 10, Windows 8.1, and Windows 7 and can be used with virtually any application. Low cost upgrades from any previous version are available to all registered users of ZoomText.
