Warning about the use of ZoomText with Internet Explorer 9

The information in this article applies to:

  • ZoomText 9.1x
  • Internet Explorer 9

Microsoft will officially release Internet Explorer 9 on March 14th, 2011, which will include support for HTML5, Direct2D and other new hardware acceleration technologies designed to increase the speed and performance of Internet Explorer. These new technologies bring new challenges for accessibility programs like ZoomText. More specifically, these technologies will have crippling adverse effects on ZoomText’s xFont, tracking and screen reading features. Therefore, at this time we are advising ZoomText users not to install or upgrade to Internet Explorer 9, as doing so will result in a loss of ZoomText functionality within Internet Explorer, and possibly a decrease in personal productivity. We do want to assure you that we are working on overcoming these problems and will provide a solution as quickly as possible.

Thank you,
The Ai Squared Support Team
