magnification, speech & Braille for Windows®
Magnification, speech or Braille - or all three? You choose. Supernova
gives people with a visual impairment the freedom to access Windows in the
way that suits them best.
Easy to use
Whatever your visual impairment, Supernova allows you to use Windows
applications, the Internet and e-mail easily. Supernova intelligently
recognizes the text and graphics which make up Windows including dialog
boxes, icons, buttons, menus and other controls. From the moment you
insert the CD, Supernova speaks through your computer's soundcard and
talks you smoothly through the user friendly installation. The computer
display is magnified so that you can see small detail more clearly and
information is also presented in Braille for users of the many supported
Braille devices. Comprehensive online help and interactive audio tutorials
ensure that you get up and running quickly and easily.

The Dolphin Links Navigator makes sorting through links on a complex web
page quick and easy. If you use the mouse, choose one of Dolphin's high
visibility mouse pointers. If you prefer the keyboard, you can browse the
web without a mouse using Dolphin's Virtual Cursor. Supernova announces
graphics labels automatically and reads through frames and tables quickly
and accurately. With the Internet Updater, keeping up with Dolphin's
latest software updates is as simple as clicking a button.
Intelligence built in
Dolphin software has more built-in intelligence than any other screen
access system. This allows Supernova to work automatically with most
off-the-shelf Window's applications; it can also be configured to work
with complex or proprietary applications. At the office or at home, for
business or pleasure, Supernova enables you to work with the latest
information technology in the same way as friends and colleagues.
All in one
There is no need to buy a separate screen reader and magnifier. Supernova
includes full screen reading in speech and Braille with integrated
magnification and works on any of the supported Windows platforms.
Supernova meets the needs of both blind and partially sighted computer
users. You need install and learn just one piece of software, making
Supernova ideal for larger institutions, libraries and businesses.
Supernova Reader Magnifier is designed with independent operation in mind.
Installed on a network or a server, Supernova can be used from any
terminal and can be switched on or off as required, giving the user the
freedom to move around a building or campus. With many features to choose
from, users can save their preferred settings and retrieve them from
wherever they choose to log on. Dolphin offers flexible licensing options
and discounts for organizations with more than one Supernova user.
Designed for reliability
Dolphin is proud of its reputation for creating software products of the
highest quality. Designed to meet the ever changing needs of today's IT
environment, Supernova does not alter either the operating system or
application software in any way. This makes it stable and reliable,
whether installed on a home PC or business network server. It also ensures
that your computer and software will remain compatible with those around
you, keeping your lines of communication wide open.
