Phone App for Low Vision

If you or a loved one have difficulty reading the large text on your smart phone due to impaired vision, you might try a new app.  Claria Zoom is an Android app that enlarges the text on many functions on your smart phone and rearranges the print so that the margins stay within your phone screen.  It also increases the size of the keyboard to make typing easier.  With the app you can also change the colors of the screen so that you have white or yellow letters on a black background, improving contrast and the ability to see the print.  The app can also read the text for you.  See a demo below.
