Hello everyone,
I am new to the forum and recently was diagnosed with RRMS. I currently have optic neuritis and have trouble seeing. Is there a way to enlarge the font? I see other options but cannot see a button to click for enlarging.
Thank you,

the only way I can help is to enlarge the font for every web site you go to.... In internet explorer, go up to the top were it says file, edit view, ect. Click on View ang go to text size, try different settings . Hope this helps

Hello soulflower,
Welcome to healingwell, I to have the problem with vision loss due to optic neuritis also.This is the things I have found to make it easier for me. First If you are using xp on your computer, if you go to accessability options and click on magnifier it helps alot. It takes a bit of getting used to but helps when reading post. Also I find that bold Blue, is much better for me to read to. Many times I just use my mag. glass and hold it to computer to
Just when I was getting used to yesterday......Along came today.

Hi Soulflower,
Another option is to use a different webbrowser, I personally use Firefox and you can make the font a lot more adjustable than you can with internet explorer.   You can really get the text huge if necessary.

You can also go to Tools, Internet Options on the menu bar in Internet Explorer. Click on the Accessibility button at the bottom. In the Accessibility box, click the check box next to "Ignore font sizes specified in web pages" in the Formatting section and then click OK. This has really helped me on my computers at home and at work.

Download Microsoft's latest Internet Explorer (Version 7.0). After the update is installed just hold down the CTRL key and press either the "+" key or the "-" to zoom in and out of the web page. It's a great new feature available with the latest version of Internet Explorer.

Thanks for asking a question I never thought to ask. I too am new to all this and never thought about having trouble reading the small fonts. Then a few months ago I started having pains and blurry vision in my right eye. Now I see things double out of that eye when I get tired and It never really clears up. I used shashi's instructions and what do you know? I can read without squinting. Thanks for asking the question Soulflower and for giving the great advice folks.
