Increasing Website Text

The text on the Schreiber website can be increased by either 1) holding down the Ctrl key and moving the scroll wheel to zoom in and out of the page, or by 2) clicking on “View” in the toolbar at the top of the page and selecting “Zoom,” then adjusting the text size to fit your needs. These two methods are recommended instead of using the “Increasing Text Size” function, which would affect the website layout and look less appealing to visitors.
