TEXT SIZE ALWAYS MATTERS TO LOW VISION INTERNET CONSUMERS, A FACT DEMONSTRATED BY THE INCREASING NUMBER OF WEBSITES WHICH OFFER A FRONT PAGE FONT CHANGE TOOL.

EXPERTS STATE THAT THE MAJOR FACTORS IN THE APPEARANCE OF ONLINE CHARACTERS ARE BROWSER AND SCREEN CHOICES, AS WELL AS THE COMPUTER'S RESOLUTION SETTING. HOWEVER, THE LATTER IS DESPITE THE TEXT SIZE OF THE ORIGINAL CONTENT UPLOAD.

WHILE OFFLINE PRINT IS MEASURED IN POINTS (72 PER VERTICAL INCH), THE TERM PIXEL (PICTURE ELEMENT) IS USUALLY CITED TO DESCRIBED THE LOOK OF A VIDEO DISPLAY WITH THESE EXAMPLES...

- 20-POINT (THIS BULLETIN TITLE) = 27 PIXELS

- 16-POINT (THIS BULLETIN NARRATIVE) = 21 PIXELS

DETERMINING YOUR ON-SCREEN TEXT SIZE CAN BE EASILY DONE BY THE FOLLOWING SCREEN READER COMMANDS...

1. VoiceOver, PRESS CONTROL-OPTION-T

2. JOB ACCESS WITH SPEECH, PRESS INSERT-F

3. WINDOW-EYES, PRESS INSERT-F

4. NON-VISUAL DESKTOP ACCESS, PRESS NVDA-F

FINALLY A CAUTION.
