Magnification and Colours

To make the page and text larger you can press CTRL and + together and if your mouse has a scroll wheel you can press CTRL use the wheel to spin one way to zoom in and the other way to scroll out.

You can change background colours in PDF documents as follows - Edit > Preferences > Accessibility > Replace document colours.


Tools and plug ins for you to use

Alternative ways of getting magnification include using speed reading plug-in like Spreed for Google Chrome or using page de-clutter tools like Reader for FireFox or Mercury Reader for Chrome.

These allow you to control both text size and background colours.

You can change colours instantly using HighContrast for Chrome or NoSquint for FireFox.


Read more effectively 

Skim read a page via headings - HeadingsMap (FireFox) and HeadingsMap (Chrome) which extract all the headings and subheadings into a navigable list.

You can also download and use Tab focus when the visual indicator is hard to see.


Listen to content 

You can listen to page content using Google Selection Reader
