    Using scanner with Adobe 8

      I am a teacher with a 10 year old student. She has an incredible IQ but has very poor eyesight. Is it possible to scan textbooks into Adobe and then enlarge the print size for printing? I am using Adobe 8 plus vista. If yes, can you tell me how?
      If you can help please contact rogerhoneyman@yahoo.com.au

          You cannot do what you want with Reader. But if you have a scanner, then
          you can scan with whatever scaling you think appropriate. If you have
          Acrobat Standard or Pro you can into Acrobat (different forum for these
          questions) and then the resulting pdf can be viewed at different
          scaling/zooms to increase the size.

            The student may be eligible to help with the eyesight is poor enough to
            be considered a disability. The school district or the school may be
            responsible of providing the needed materials in an appropriate form.
            Many texts are available as pdfs (from the publisher), then Acrobat's
            reading/speaking technologies could be used with the pdf text.
