It has been brought to my attention that ZoomText will no longer be available for the Apple Mac. For those of us that use this system for magnification and speech, this came as quite a blow. Not only had we paid for ZoomText Mac, but we also purchased our apple mac's at quite the hefty price i might add, and now ZoomText was throwing us to the curb and i might add with no notification that they were going to do this. Although i've called and sent an email i have received no reply from them . This all happens with the upgrade to Mohave.
You can however keep your ZoomText if you do not do the upgrade. This is what i have chosen to do. the upgrade is internal to the computer and does not make that much of a difference to the system. I have however taken a lesson with voice-over as well as Zoom on my mac so that when i must do an upgrade i won't be left out in the cold not being able to use my Mac. You can take a lesson with your disabilities support people from Apple, they were very helpful to me and i am very grateful for their help.
I will keep practicing the voice-over and zoom until i have it down pat. Then when i need to upgrade it will be seamless . We can thank Apple for being their for us when we needed them. ZoomText however needs to be forgotten.
