How to magnify your screen

Internet Explorer

  • Choose the drop down menu at the top of the window of the browser marked 'View'
  • A list of options will appear in the drop down menu - choose 'Zoom'
  • Next another drop down menu should appear with options of; Zoom in, Zoom out, or a specific magnification

Firefox

  • Choose the drop down menu at the top of the window of the browser marked 'View'
  • A list of options will appear in the drop down menu - choose 'Zoom' and then 'Zoom in'
  • The text in your browser window should now appear larger

If you change the settings and find that this does not magnify the text enough to be useful, then it is worth investigating screen magnification software.

Screen magnification can magnify up to 16 times. Products vary depending on features, such as whether speech support is built into the program. Examples of such products include Lunar, MAGic and Zoomtext.
