Yes, gnome-shell is a solution. kmag for KDE as well. Actually it
depends on what your friend uses now, and its need in visual assistance.

MATE desktop (on Debian 8) enables to customize colours, fonts, size of
desktop. We uploaded Compiz in testing, it implements many features
(negative plugin, mouse theme, mouse identification). So it depends on
your distro too.

Best regards,
