I've never heard of anyone needing to read in all caps - they can just increase the print size or the screen resolution!

I was on another forum where a poster claimed she needed to use all caps because of her eyesight. Maybe she wasn't a sophisticated enough user to reset as the other poster suggested.

I am partially sighted. Yes it is sometimes easier to see Caps particularly in words with several 'mn' or 'il' letters together.
However, as has been mentioned, there are several methods to make the font larger. If you usethe 'veiw' 'options' 'font size ' route the main proble is that many sites distort and text overlaps and becomes illegeble.

Windows has a built in magnifier and also there are some mag progamsthat Blind association can help you find.

My sight varies and when it is at its worst can be down to 20% - 25%. Even then I can manage to use the pc by these methods.

I had the disability settings on all the time up until a few months ago when I got a new PC. I had the graphics card upgraded from the standard one that came with it and combined with the new Flat Screen I have been able to see enough not to need them since.

Bottom line is: You have to accept you are in the minority and try to find ways to make the world accessable to you - you can't expect the whole world to evolve around your handicap.

Adjusting text size is very easy.

If you are using Mozilla Foxfire -- Hold down the Ctrl key and turn the wheel on your mouse. If your mouse does not have a wheel, hold down the ctrl key and hit the + or - key.

If you are using Internet Explorer, switch to Foxfire, it is better...If using Internet Explorer, select "View" on the top menu. Go to "Text Size". Pick a larger size.

Sorry Greyghost I didn't mean to suggest you personally did expect it. Sorry if I cause any offence. Reading it back I can understand how it might have come across - one of the problems of not being abble to go back and edit your message after you post it.
