OneLoupe is a digital rectangular lens to zoom in on anything that appears on your screen. The only way you can open this program is by clicking on the icon in the system tray. Once you have done that you can move the lens around and, by turning the mouse’s scroll wheel, zoom in and out up to 9X.
The application is extremely light and can be useful for everyone, not just for people with sight problems. There are two major weak points I’ve noticed, though. One is that you can’t launch the program by simply pressing a combination of keys or with the right click button of the mouse. The other is that when zooming in, the application doesn’t even try to recalculate what’s displayed and both text and images become highly pixilated. Especially with texts, I don’t think it would have been a very difficult algorithm to implement.
While the lens is on, if you press the ‘b’ key, the program copies what’s being magnified to the clipboard. This is a useful and time-saving function, especially for presentations or whenever you need a visual example of what you are talking about.
OneLoupe can open a digital lens to zoom in on a text or a picture and paste what’s spotlighted in the clipboard with just one click.
