No, a standard Windows magnifier does NOT seem to work here -- the
student is already using a (commercial) magnifier, ZoomText, at my
university's Assistive Technologies Center.
The problem is that you have to begin with a high quality, pre-magnified
page; otherwise the fonts come out looking very "dotty".
If you use Mathematica's built-in magnifier in a notebook, it does
provide enlarged, fairly smooth fonts. Then when you zoom further --
and this student has to magnify things really large -- the resulting
text is still readable.
