Changing Text Size

Some people who are using a monitor with a high screen resolution or laptop with a small screen may find text too small to read comfortably. Individuals with a visual impairment may also want to increase text size to make our site easier to read.

Here’s how to do it:

Internet Explorer

Select the ‘View’ menu, then select ‘Text Size’ and the size you require.


Press ‘ Ctrl ‘ and ‘ + ‘ together to increase the text size. ‘ Ctrl ‘ and ‘ – ‘ together decreases the text size and ‘ Ctrl ‘ and ‘ 0 ‘ returns you to regular viewing.


Use the ‘ + ’ and ‘ – ‘ keys on your numeric keypad to Increase or decrease the size of text and graphics.


To change text size in the Safari Browser, click on the ‘ View ‘ menu. Then select ‘Make Text Bigger’ or ‘Make Text Smaller’ to change the font size.

You can also use keyboard shortcuts ‘Apple’ and ‘ + ‘ and ‘Apple’ and ‘ – ‘ to make the adjustment.
