MAGic Training from Freedom Scientific

MAGic® screen magnification software is our state-of-the-art tool that combines magnification with a true low vision speech option. It is easy to use and includes many versatile, powerful features. Freedom Scientific provides many types of training for MAGic, including basic training in text and narrated audio DAISY format, as well as just MP3 files. In our training workshops we also encourage people to use JAWS and MAGic simultaneously since both products work very well together.
