Online Reading Help

For those who have trouble reading online here are a couple tips that might help :

Accessories: Accessibility Program: Microsoft Magnifier
Microsoft Magnifier is a display utility that makes the screen more readable for some individuals with low vision. It displays a magnified portion of the screen in a separate window. You can move or resize the Magnifier window, or dock the window by dragging it to the edge of the screen. You can also alter the color scheme and contrast of the magnification window.

To start Microsoft Magnifier:

Choose Start
Choose Programs
Choose Accessories
Choose Accessibility
Choose Magnifier

* Note: I tryed this and it works, you will have to experiment with it to get familair with the windows, but they are scalable, I use XP Pro and do not know if this is part of other operating systems such as Win 2k or ME or 98..**

Also In Internet Explorer under "View" ( this is between the words "Edit" & "Favorites") at the top of your browser, you can click View and the tab will drop down and you will see the words "Text Size", you can make your text bigger here for reading online.
