On a Mac system, in Chrome, press the option + command + plus key (+) to make text larger, or the option + command + minus key (-) to make text smaller. In Firefox and Safari, press the command and the plus key (+) to make text larger, and the command + minus key (-) to make text smaller.
Larger text with IOS
Open up your system settings and tap "Display & Brightness"
Tap the "Text Size" option, then move the slider at the bottom of the screen to make the text as large as you'd like
If you want to make the text even larger than that slider will allow, go back to the main settings menu, tap "General" > "Accessibility" > "Larger text." That'll let you increase the text size substantially using the same slider at the bottom of the screen.
iOS also has a system-wide magnification function, which you can activate by heading into the "Accessibility" area:
Go to Settings > General > Accessibility
Tap on "Zoom," and toggle the feature on
You will now have a window that you can move around the screen to magnify anything on that screen. Double-tap with three fingers to remove the window or bring it back again.
Change text and background colours
Some people find certain text and background colour combinations difficult to read, while others prefer to always have a specific colour such as white text on a black background.
You can invert the screen colours in Chrome OS on Chromebook computers with High contrast mode.
In the System menu, select the Settings In the Settings window, select Accessibility from the left-hand menu. If Accessibility is not visible, select Advanced or Personalization to reveal more menu items.
On the Accessibility settings screen, go to the Display section. Select Use high contrast mode to set the toggle switch to On.
