Increasing text size

Some users might find screen text easier to read by increasing the size at which text is displayed. To do this you should simply adjust your browser’s settings. If you use Microsoft Internet Explorer, go to the View menu, select Text Size and then either Larger or Largest.

If you use Netscape Navigator, go to the View menu and choose Increase Font until the text is the size you require.

If you use Firefox, go to the ‘View menu’, select ‘Text Size’ and then select ‘Increase’. You can have the same effect by using the keyboard and press the keys ‘Ctrl’ and ‘+’ at the same time.
