Chapter 5. System Preferences > Universal Access

5.9. Universal Access

The Universal Access pane of System Preferences is, in principle, designed to make the Mac easier to use for people with sight, sound, or motor control challenges. Still, it harbors enough handiness for just about anyone.

5.9.1. Zooming In on the Screen

Sure, the Zoom feature (in the Universal Access preference pane) is helpful to the visually impaired, but its usefulness extends far beyond that one application. Its ability to magnify the screen is ideal for graphic designers trying to see how a certain icon or font is built (pixel by pixel), or for anyone who encounters a Web page with tiny type, or even for people who want to watch online movies. (Enlarged movies are nicely smoothed when you zoom in.)
