Combined screen reader and magnifier with Braille support

Supernova offers magnification, speech and Braille support, giving people with visual impairment the freedom to access Windows in the way that suits them best.

Supernova has been developed for all visually impaired users, from low vision to blind. It is ideal for both individual users, who experience varying or deteriorating eye conditions during a working day or for institutional settings, such as in school or work, that need to provide solutions for visually impaired groups with a range of sight difficulties.

No other screen reader or magnifier can deliver a combination of magnification, speech and Braille. This makes Supernova a perfect solution for schools, colleges and the workplace where multiple types of visual impairment co-exist. It is also ideal for individuals who like to progress from magnification to speech during the working day.
