Font Size

This website has been built allowing the user to change the site’s font size. Users can change the font size by either one of two ways, via the Font Size tool or via the browser options.

The Font Size tool, is positioned in the top right hand corner of all the website’s pages. There are three AAAs to indicate whether the font size will be increased or decreased. The default font size used on the site is represented by the smallest A. Users can quickly change the font size by clicking on any one of the A buttons.

Alternatively users can user the browser options available to them. Internet Explorer users on the PC should select ‘View' in the navigation bar, then scroll down and roll over the sub navigation option ‘Text Size'. You will be presented with five font size options ranging from ‘Smallest' to ‘Largest.'

For Mac users using Internet Explorer select ‘View' from the navigation bar, scroll down and roll over the ‘Text View' sub navigation option. You will see a range of text sizes in terms of percentages, as well as the general terms of 'Smaller' and 'Larger'.
