Ian,

I would be happy to discuss modifications to HTML.edit (for the Macintosh)
that might assist the visually impaired. I could provide larger tool
palettes or possibly a system of sounds that might help. In version 1.8 I'm
planning on adding palette menu font options that would allow larger font
sizes.

Visually impaired Mac users have some available OS tools that modify screen
resources and such, but there may be others that would help that I am
ignorant of. Specifically, I am not aware of extensions that would increase
the size of dialog boxes, as that would be a substantial amount of
modification.

Murray
