Help with text sizing

Posted by Laura Haskins - Library Director on November 15, 2007

Is the text on this site too small for you to read comfortably? We don’t have the option of making it larger for everyone, but you can do this for yourself. And what’s more, you can use this trick on almost any website.

If you’re using Mozilla’s Firefox as your browser, text size controls are built in. Just hold down the control key (Ctrl) while you hit the “+” or “-” key. The “+” makes the text larger, and the more times you hit this key combination, the larger the text becomes. The “-” key combo does the same thing in reverse, stepping the text size down each time you hit it.

If you’re using Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, you need to click to expand the “Page” menu at the top of the window, then click on “Text size” and then choose from the sizes offered in the menu. Microsoft publishes a visual guide to this process on their website; it uses the Vista operating system in its example, but the process is similar for older versions of Windows and Internet Explorer.

If you are using Safari or Firefox for the Mac, the instructions are the same as for Windows’ Firefox, only you hold down the command key while hitting the “+” or “-” key.

In most browsers, this setting will persist when you leave this page. If the setting is uncomfortable at another site, it’s easily changed back again using the same methods.

And when you’re in the library using our public computers, these same tips work there. If you know you want the larger text, though, you may prefer using the computer closest to the library desk, since that one is set to show everything larger, all the time.
