Post Does the new CyBook support ultra-large fonts (>72 points) ?

My 94-year-old mother has used the original CyBook for several years. Unfortunately, I recently had to disassemble it to resolder the power supply connector, and I lost the MobiPocket Vision reader software when it reset. I do not have a copy of the low vision software that CyBook provided me at the time, and they are not answering their email.

Does the new CyBook scale the fonts for DRMed MobiPocket books like hers does (or did)? The MobiPocket Vision version would enable fonts as large as perhaps 100 points or more. If the new CyBook will do that, I'll buy one for her tomorrow (or as soon as they are available).

Thanks,

Bob
