Text Size and Zoom

Difficulty: Beginner


  • Presentation

Content must remain readable and understandable when text size or page zoom is set to at least 200% or twice the default size. While it is optimal to decrease the likelihood of horizontal scrollbars or changes in visual design or document layout at these settings, readability and understandability are most critical to accessibility. This can be tested by selecting Control + (or Command + on a Mac) in your web browser or by increasing the text size under the View menu.
