Most of the text on this web site is displayed in black on a white background for high contrast and easy readability.
However, if the text is too small for you, your browser's zoom controls allow you to increase or decrease either the size of the whole web page or just the size of the text.
Zoom in or out of a website
Browsers have zoom controls which are accessible from their customisation menu. Typically, you use the button to zoom in, and the button to zoom out. The number in the middle is usually the current zoom level which can be reset to 100%. You can also use zoom controls without a mouse.
Only change the size of the text
Instead of changing the size of everything, you can just change the size of the text by setting your browser's zoom controls to only effect text; not images and videos.
Set a minimum text size
You can set your browser to automatically display all text at a minimum font size. If a web page contains text that is smaller, your browser will increase the font size of the text to this minimum.
Each browser has slightly different methods for dealing with these ease of access options. For more information please refer to the support page for your browser:
