MagniLink iMax – the software with magnification for Mac users

LVI Low Vision International presents MagniLink iMax, the software which makes your Mac fully accessible! Together with the video magnifier MagniLink Student, this is a complete and unique solution for Mac users. The development of MagniLink iMax is a result of the collaboration between LVI and Assistiveware, the worldwide leader in innovative assistive technology software for Mac. 

MagniLink iMax provides [Picture of MagniLink iMAX]  magnification, contour enhancement and pointer settings as well as screen reading with high-quality speech output. In addition to Text To Speech voices, such as Infovox iVox by Acapela, MagniLink iMax comes with automatic language identification in the screen reader mode and GhostReader - an application for reading documents, whichis both easier and better compared with the built-in features of Mac OS.

GhostReader contains shortkeys for fast and easy access to the text and the user can listen to documents including file types such as Text, Word, HTML, PDF, ODT or RTF. Furthermore, you can save texts as Mp3-files to be played in iTunes, be uploaded to your iPod, iPad or burned onto a CD!


“AssistiveWare is the leading developer of universal access solutions for Mac OS X,” said Erik Bondemark, CEO of LVI Low Vision International. “They were a natural choice to partner with for screen magnifying software when we decided to make our MagniLink video magnifier fully compatible with Mac OS X.” 

With features like split screen, dual screen support, full-screen mode, multiple high-contrast modes, a circular and a squared lens-zoom, MagniLink iMax gives you the ability to set the screen mode based on your own preferences. The contrast enhancement mode gives a clear picture with smooth character edges regardless of the magnification. MagniLink iMax is compatible with Mac OS X version 10.6 (Snow Leopard). 

“LVI Low Vision International is the first company to provide a fully Mac OS X compatible video magnifier,” said David Niemeijer, AssistiveWare’s CEO. “Being innovators ourselves we wanted iMax to be the best possible companion product for their excellent hardware.”

MagniLink iMax is localized in English, Swedish, Danish, Finish, Spanish, French, German, Dutch, and Norwegian. MagniLink iMax includes voices for one language of choice, additional voices are available for purchase. MagniLink iMax can be purchase stand-alone or in combination with the MagniLink Student or MagniLink Vision video magnifiers.
