This is important if you are using a Chrome Flipbook or a Chromebook with a touch screen. Under the magnification settings, you can turn on the onscreen keyboard that can be used to type text similar to the way one uses the on screen keyboard of the iPad.
The Screen Magnification setting for Chromebook is most appropriate for those with low vision who benefit from the basic magnification options since magnification settings in Chromebook only increase to approximately 2x. However, one the biggest benefits to the magnification settings in Chromebook is that you can activate Chromevox, Magnification, Contrast and the On Screen Keyboard at the same time. Being able to activate all these magnification features as needed makes the Chromebook much more accessible to the wide array of needs to people with low vision.
