Assistive Catalog and Internet Stations

All branch locations and the fourth floor of the Orlando Public Library house assistive vision stations that include JAWS for Windows, MAGic Screen Magnification, OpenBook, a 19-inch monitor, and a Braille keyboard:

  • Jaws for Windows is a software program that uses a speech synthesizer to read aloud all text that appears on the screen.
  • MAGic Screen Magnification is a screen magnification program that enlarges images and text that appear on the screen.
  • OpenBook allows you to convert printed documents or graphic based text into an electronic text format using accurate optical character recognition and quality speech.
  • In addition to these technologies, some internet stations feature Bigprint software which enlarges and enhances text.
