ZoomText 9.1

What is ZoomText?  (from Ai Squared)

ZoomText Magnifier enlarges and enhances everything on your computer screen, making all of your applications easy to see and use. Our revolutionary new ‘xFont’ technology displays crystal clear text at all magnification levels. Once you’ve seen it, no other screen magnifier will do.


ZoomText 9.1 is a software program developed by Ai Squared. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named zt.exe. The setup package generally installs about 65 files and is usually about 34.83 MB (36,517,852 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows Vista (SP2). While about 65% of users of ZoomText come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and Belgium.
