  1. Hi Sally,
    The easiest way to increase the font size on your screen is to hold down Ctrl and press the + key as many times as you need. This works on most browsers and most websites. There are also the Accessibility options on most computers, such as the Windows magnifier (which I use sometimes when images are too small).

    There is more detail for almost all situations online such as here and here.

    I shall bear in mind the issue you raise in the revised website I am developing, and ask for comments.


  2. Hi Peter
    This is possibly the wrong place to leave a general comment but it applies here too!
    It’s me really but I’m finding I do have problems reading all the small print! It’s clearer where it is black on white.
    Is it possible to increase the font size or change the colours of writing?
