D06: Changing size of text on Internet

QUESTION: I have trouble reading some of the text when I’m on the Internet. Can I increase the size of text on the web?

ANSWER: Each website is designed slightly differently and some fail to take into consideration ease of viewing—especially for those that wear bifocals or have cataracts. Here’s how you can increase the font size while on the Internet, but keep in mind that not all sites will improve: First, sign onto the Internet as you normally do. Click on View, then click on Text Size, next click on Largest or Increase.
