Windows – TFT Native Resolution / Visually Impaired User

resolutiontftwindows xp

I’ve been asked by a visually impaired friend whether it’s possible to improve the image quality of a TFT that’s not running at its Native Resolution.

She’s recently purchased a Samsung SyncMaster T220, though wants to use a low resolution so that everything appears nice and big. However, at a low resolution the text on screen appears very blurred.

Does anyone know of any software or graphics cards that would help? (She’s using XP.)

Many thanks in advance for any help.

Best Answer

Is she running at a low resolution because text is too small at high resolution? Change the monitor to its native resolution, and bump up the font size in Windows XP.

If it's for other reasons, one way to reduce blurriness is to have it so that the resolution is exactly half. So if your LCD's native resolution is 1600x1200, try changing the resolution to 800x600.
