Sounds like a closed circuit television would be most appropriate. It does
not seem reasonable to teach literacy skills in a medium (that large) which
would not be commercially available.

We (the disAbility Resource Center, a CIL in Everett) are providing, among
other things, literacy training services. We have recently found that one,
and we are pretty sure there are more, participants need some rather large
magnification (bigger than 72 point). This would typically be for items
such as books or other reading materials.
I would love any opinions on cost efficent, reliable methods to achieve
