Increasing the font size.
If you find the size of the text on our website too small you can easily adjust it by using the font size setting in your browser. If you use Internet Explorer 6, go to the “View” menu, select “Text Size” and then select “Larger”. If you use Internet Explorer 7 and 8 or Firefox, you can resize text using the zoom function by pressing and holding down “Ctrl” and “+”. This will then zoom in allowing users with low vision to see the text more clearly. Use “Ctrl” and “-” to decrease the zoom again.
