If you use Microsoft Internet Explorer, you can download the latest version from Microsoft.

Increasing The Text Size In Your Browser

Firefox, Chrome, Safari & Internet Explorer 7+
Modern browsers such as Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Internet Explorer 7+ not only increase font size, but actually zoom their display. This makes it much easier for visually impaired users to view text as well as images. To do this, simply press CTRL and + together until the font size reaches a size you are happy with. To decrease the font size, simply press CTRL and – together. If you are using an Apple Mac, please substitute CTRL with CMMD.

Opera
Opera offers a similar functionality as above, and this can be achieved by simply pressing + or to increase and decrease respectively.

What is RSS?

RSS (Rich Site Summary) is a format used to deliver regularly changing web content. Many sites that feature regularly or constantly changing content, such as news related websites, blogs and other online publications offer an RSS feed to their site’s users.

Why Should You Use RSS?
RSS allows you to easily stay up to date with your favorite websites by retrieving the latest content and sending it straight to you. You’ll save time by not needing to visit each site, checking for updates.

What You’ll Need

There are many RSS Feed Readers available for different platforms. The most popular include Amphetadesk (Windows, Linux, Mac), FeedReader (Windows), and NewsGator (Windows – this one can be quite useful as it integrates with Outlook). If you prefer, there are also web-based feed readers available such as My Yahoo and Google Reader are the most popular web-based RSS Feed Readers.
