@Pip_Jamieson Also, text on the site is hard to read (small/low contrast). Should be minimum of font size 12 or 14. Other than that, thanks!— cbyrne (@SEOTipsnTricks) May 27, 2015
@udacity The text on your website (also in lectures & forums) is just too painful to read, they're way too small! (Chrome, Mac 10.8)— Duc Nguyen (@duc_nt) February 15, 2013
The web can be a frustrating experience for hundreds of millions of people worldwide that have varying degrees of low vision. Colours, contrasts, designs and fonts on websites are often unsuitable for many users. Text may be too small and links that are commonly only marked by color can be easily overlooked, especially by people who have some form of color blindness.
I just saw the most disgusting website. The font? The size? I feel like I'm reading a medical book. Fire whoever made this website— ᴮᴱKarolina⁷ |-\ ⟭⟬ (@TaeAmoARMY) August 6, 2020
People with low vision can apply a combination of features using helpAccess to help them enjoy a far better experience on web pages. The immersive reader can come in handy to read along with or just have it read text on a page. Features like increasing font size, larger cursor, highlight headings and links and others give users plenty of room to browse easier by calibrating their own web experience.
You don't realize how poorly many websites are coded until you increase your browser's default font size and see how often text doesn't change size.— Marina (@Avalai) July 28, 2020
Useful for many types of visual impairments, zoom easily in and out of a web page and slide effortlessly across web pages
For low contrast sensitivity, common in older people and colour blindness, using high contrast can help better identify diagrams, maps and other types of images, icons and buttons.
Modify fonts in a variety of ways to make text clearer and easier to read. Change levels of font size, color and even spacing between letters, words and lines to consume content comfortably.
