If you prefer Compiz, MATE comes with Compiz already installed, I think you just need to add the package compizconfig-settings-manager to be able to configure it.
Cinnamon on Linux Mint 13 is extremely easy to configure for zooming. Just go to System Tools > System Settings > Keyboard. On the Shortcuts tab select "Universal Access" on the left and you can configure the shortcut key to enable/disable zoom and the keys to zoom in and out. Couldn't be easier For those with other accessibility needs, check System Settings > Universal Access where you can configure help for those with trouble seeing, hearing or mobility (for some you configure the shortcut keys to enable/disable also in the above location).
Compiz may help on MATE, but I think it is not needed on Cinnamon due to the excellent integration of accessibility tools in the Gnome 3 core.
