Low vision accessibility issues

Posted

For us low vision folks who lost our main accessibility extension yesterday. How can we enlarge the font on the menu bar and the bookmark sub-menu lists? The bookmark drop menu is unreadable now for us with low vision.

Hi Boker,

I don't know if you can do anything on the browser level but maybe try doing it from the operating system level? There's a bunch of accessibility tools and hotkeys on Windows that you can use and they should be good enough to enlarge everything on the screen including the browser menus.

You can look at this extension, updated for 57+, to adjust the font size in the user interface.

cor-el, I reinstalled the extension, yet it gives me this message: : (

"Because of the new extension system on Firefox, most of the functionality of the Theme Font & Size Changer is not available any more. You can read more about this new system here.

Perhaps in a week or so they'll update it so it works properly again.

Tried the Windows Magnifier, but that wouldn't work for bookmarks. And it drove me insane. lol Still waiting for a better way to enlarge bookmarks.

Thank you, Pkshadow. I use that often for web pages, but sadly - it doesn't help us low vision folks with reading our many saved bookmarks.

For anyone else reading this, a temporary fix is to download the free Vivaldi browser for low vision and importing your bookmarks into it - until Firefox becomes accessible again. The Vivaldi bookmarks are somewhat bigger, and I can look at them without my eyes going into spasms like they do on Firefox now. : )
