Download Virtual Magnifying Glass – Free Screen Magnification Tool

Virtual Magnifying Glass is a free, open source, cross-platform screen magnification tool.  It is designed for visually-impaired and others who need to magnify a part of the screen. Unlike most similar programs it does not open a separate window for the magnification but instead puts a movable magnifying glass on screen.
