Check out our complete list of upcoming events.
We’re excited to announce that the next free update in the ZoomText 10.0 cycle is here. We’ve improved our reading support for email in outlook.com; enhanced our mouse pointers so they appear much sharper and clearer; increased the size of the lens zoom window; included a bunch of bug fixes, and so much more.
We are happy to announce that ZoomText Mac now supports Apple’s latest operating system, Mavericks! This is not an automatic update so you will need to download and install it manually.
Apple made some security changes in the latest upgrade, changing the install process for ZoomText. Derek has made a great video outlining exactly how to install ZoomText Mac in Mavericks.
This update is ONLY for the Mavericks operating system. If you have not upgraded to Mavericks, or have no plans to do so, please just continue to use the ZoomText Mac version you currently have.
We’re excited to announce another free update in the ZoomText 10.1 for Windows 8 cycle. We improved performance, fixed various bugs, and made corrections to a couple of our international localized versions.

This time around, we’d love to hear your thoughts on WebReader, the new tool we added into ZoomText Mac (skip ahead two articles for even more info). The tool is in beta right now and the best way to improve it is to hear from you, the user! If you own ZoomText Mac, be sure to take the tool through all its paces and let us know what you think. Don’t own a Mac? No problem! Just watch our video that demonstrates WebReader and let us know what you like about it and what you feel could be improved.
Email your entry to Becca by November 1st and you’ll be entered into the drawing for a $100 Amazon.com gift certificate.
We thank you in advance, this will be a big help for us. Send in your feedback now!

ZoomText user Kathy Kalaluhi sent in a bunch of websites that she thought other ZoomText users would find interesting and helpful. We liked the idea so much that it’s become a regular “column” in ZoomNews! Below were her suggestions and if you’d like to submit any websites for the next issue, please email them to Becca.
We’re excited to announce that the first free update in the ZoomText 10.1 for Windows 8 cycle is here. We now support 17 international languages, added back in a few features like Desktop Finder and View Mode, included support for Windows Hiberboot, plus fixed a variety of bugs.
We’re pleased to announce the latest free update in the ZoomText Mac lifecycle! We have added support for Swedish and Dutch, and included a beta version of a brand new reading tool called WebReader. It extracts just the important content from a busy webpage and reads it back to you using one of the built-in, high quality voices already on your Mac.
