Seems I have found a solution (Johan Nel eyesight)

Hi all,
Last week I was thinking of ways to become productive again since my loss of vision and thought of an overhead projector, but unfortunately for me to "see" most of the time I am trying to read in the shadow of my body, since I cannot see text further than 30cm...

I however asked at the shop to connect a laptop to a HD television set and after some Notepad testing it appear I would be able to have some capabilities with the 50 inch curved screen (text visible and using the Windows Magnifier for unrecognizable text) giving a good balance between reading and not having to feel like playing tennis on my wheeled chair. Fingers crossed!!!

In the mean time, thanks to all for the wishes. Although slow it seems I am able to at least navigate in XIDE (thanks Chris) with large fonts giving me effectively an 80X20 source code view on the 50 inch screen.

Best wishes to all and hope to be active again, although it might be slow.

Kind regards,

Johan Nel

Hey, that's fantastic to hear! If there's anything we could do to help you, please shout!

Regarding XIDE specifically, if you can think of something like bigger windows, bigger fonts, anything that could help you out, let me know. I will be more than happy to add an option to change the IDE appearance in such a way that it will be more productive for you.

cheers!
