Troubleshooting

Many seniors have difficulty viewing some Web sites (even those specifically targeted at seniors!) due to the small font sizes used on some Web pages. A solution for this is to increase the normal font size in your browser. In Internet Explorer, you can do this by selecting View, Text Size, and then choosing either Large or Largest. In Netscape, select View, Text Size, and then select a percentage greater than 100%.

Windows itself has several accessibility options that might be useful to older users. These tools are not installed by default, but can be added to your system at any time. To add these accessibility options, open the Windows Control Panel, launch the Add/Remove Programs applet, and select the Windows Setup tab. In the Components list, check the Accessibility option, then click OK. You’ll probably need to insert your Windows Installation CD, then Windows will install these components—which include (among other features) Microsoft Magnifier (to enlarge selected areas of the screen) and the ability to display the screen in a high contrast mode.
