This is what Wikipedia has to say about ZoomText:

ZoomText is a screen magnifier for Microsoft Windows,
developed by AI
. Its first version was released for DOS in 1988, and its first version for
Windows was released in 1991. ZoomText comes in two
versions: one with only the magnifier, and one with an in-built screen
. The latest version of ZoomText is ZoomText 9.0, which was released
in 2005.

And this is what QTSaver has to add to this article:
