Make Text as Large as Possible

Android phones have the built-in ability to display text on the screen in the largest possible font your Android device can show. Larger text is also helpful if you are blind because having larger text reduces the number of things displayed on the screen, and in turn makes it much easier to click on the right items.

To make sure that your Android phone displays text as largely as possible, we need to change the Large Text settings, which are turned off by default. For this one-time setup, it would best to have someone helping you in setting it up.

Here is step by step how to get your Android phone or tablet to display text in the largest font size possible:
  1. Towards the bottom of the screen, click on the icon that leads you to all applications


  2. Swipe your finger from right to left to find the Settings icon and click on it


  3. Scroll all the way down until you find the Accessibility option and click on it


  4. In the middle of your screen, find the Large Text option


  5. Enable Large Text by clicking on it once
  6. As a confirmation, a checkmark will be displayed next to Large Text


  7. Now that Large Text is activated, you can get back to your home screen by clicking on the Home button in the middle at the very bottom of your screen


If you have Explore by Touch already enabled, then the steps you need to take are just slightly different:
