Windows Terminal Server support
Version 5.30 now includes a combination of screen magnification, speech and Braille support for Windows Terminal Server 2000/2003 and Citrix Metaframe XP, sessions. This allows remote access to applications via a network server even when the data is not stored locally and is commonly known as "thin client" (remote terminal) technology. Supernova, Hal, Lunar and LunarPlus provide screen magnification, speech and/or Braille support for desktop server terminals, with Supernova and Hal also providing speech and Braille support for thin client remote terminals. This now allows businesses to offer equality of access to their computer systems from all networked terminals. Speech support within a remote terminal environment will necessitate the use of an external hardware synthesiser.
