Talking Books: Increasing the Font Size

Increasing the Font Size of a Web Page

The latest versions of several web browsers (e.g., Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari) allow users to easily increase the font size for better readability. Try holding down the Ctrl key (Command key on a Macintosh) and press the + (plus) key. You can also decrease the font size by holding down the Ctrl or Command key and pressing the - (minus) key.

If this does not work, you may find instructions on the Web Accessibility Initiative site to be helpful. If you are still unsuccessful, you might consider upgrading to the latest version of your browser.
