Dear readers,

The notes above support keyboards on personal computers such as laptops, desktops. But might not function on plug + play keyboards for smart-phones and tablets.

So check your device HOW TO:

  • change size of text + images on-screen — with keyboard buttons, track pads, mouse
  • change size of text + images on-screen — with touch-screen
  • change device settings — for text + image display size
  • change web browser settings — for text + image display size

Some search phrases for enlarging text + images:

  • screen magnification
  • screen resolution
  • reading view
  • browser webpage display size

There are special software tools called assistive tech — designed to help disabled, low-vision, low-hearing, and special needs people navigate text and images on-screen, see links below.
