Browser text (making it bolder - not bigger)
Posted on 2013-09-25
I have a potentially perplexing one.
I'm trying to help someone improve the quality of the text in their browser (IE9, FF, Chrome - all three). This person told me that a past technician made their browser text BOLDER - not bigger (I know how to do that on all three). But now this person has a new computer and wants me to duplicate what was done in the past.
I am certain that there is no way to do this... Fire Fox's Options/Content/Fonts & Colors setting has very limited affect on how most websites look because websites almost always control the look of the screen.
Is this person correct or am I correct?
I really want to help this person because he has poor eyesight. Making the text bigger affects the positioning and generally messes up the page.... but I admit, if the text was darker, it would be an improvement in clarity.
OS: Windows 8
Browsers: IE9 (or whatever the latest is), FF (latest), Chrome (latest).
Hopefully this made sense.
