Although the Text Size itself cannot be amended, all modern browsers will have the ability to Zoom into the page, enlarging the whole screen (including the text). Alternatively, if you find the images distracting, you can click to ‘enter reader view’, located within your URL bar. All pages are coded using a DIV layout that's responsive, so it adapts to the window size, and makes it easy to zoom in for example.
You can set your browser to apply certain rules about font colour, background colour and font face automatically to all web pages you visit. In Internet Explorer, for example, select the Tools menu – Internet options. Then select the Colours and Fonts of your choice. Once you have done this, select the Accessibility button and check the boxes to ignore font sizes, styles and colours specified on web pages (it will use your defaults instead).
