TEXT RESIZING

If you have a general problem with the size of text on websites (ours and others) there are several ways of increasing the size:

 

CHANGE OPERATING SYSTEM PREFERENCES

You can change settings within Windows or Macintosh operating system to increase the size of text used – this makes all text on your computer larger (not just websites).

 

CHANGE BROWSER PREFERENCES

You can change settings within your browser to increase the default size of “normal” text – this has the effect of enlarging the text on all the websites that you visit (provided those websites have been built in an accessible way).


Internet Explorer:
From the menu bar underneath the search field, select Page and point to Text size


Mozilla, Firefox and most other browsers (PC):
Hold down the CTRL key and press +
Decrease text size: Hold down the CTRL key and press –


Macintosh (Safari, Firefox and most other browsers):
Hold down the Command key and press +
Decrease text size: Hold down the Command key and press –

 

ZOOM-IN (MODERN BROWSERS ONLY)

You can use modern browsers to enlarge any web-page – the effect is to zoom-in to the page just like enlarging an image. All “modern” browsers support this feature: Mozilla, Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer 8+ (but unfortunately not Internet Explorer versions 6 or 7).
