Changing font size on the fly
Posted on 2001-06-03
I have quite a few html documents that I want to make available to a large number of students with disabilities to read off line. Some of these students are vision impaired and could benefit from large fonts ? 18, 24 or 36 points. I did find some code that would enable the students to be able to change the background color by choosing a color from a form on each document I provided. I would like to be able to do the same with the font size. I understand this would be difficult because there is typically more than one font size in a document. I would be satisfied if only the default font size could be changed.
If this is possible would it be possible to change the font color on the fly as well?
These answers did not really solve the problem. I have a script that changes the background color that
font size in the document, after it is displayed. What I read says it cannot be done.
color but did not change the script size for the document.
I know we could instruct people to change the browser defaults, but I am trying to see if there is any
solution like changing background color on a html file after it is displayed.
