Advices to Seniors

Seniors generally have some degree of low vision, and require magnifying characters in print.

In Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer, you may increase the font sizes of Web content. However, not all graphic user interfaces can be magnified by increasing font sizes alone without messing up the layouts of the user interfaces.

Microsoft Windows has provided utility programs helping senior users. A common used program is Magnifier, which is available in [Start -> Accessories -> Accessibility -> Magnifier].

Microsoft also provided a set of utilities and trainings of accessibility.
