Text Resizing

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

  1. 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)
  2. Change Browser Preferences
    You can change settings within your browser to increase the default size of 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)
