    Visually Impaired Users

    I'm trying to come up with a solution for 5 or 6 visually impaired students who would benefit from having a profile or GPO attached to their user objects with a large mouse pointer with contrast, larger icons and larger text. Anyone have any suggestions on the best/easiest way to do this with mandatory profiles? These kids are in 4 different schools and each of the schools' profiles are different (the software that high school students use is different than elementary).

    There is a piece of software called Zoomtext that we used to use at my last place. Had it installed everywhere with only the few students with access to start the program

    hi

    the way i got round this was to create a mandatory profile with large text icons and mouse pointers etc and point any special needs pupils to that profile.

    it works great and i have also created a profile for pupils with dislexia.
