How to Make Text More Readable on Android
No matter how good the screens are on our phones and tablets, the text is just too darn tiny if you have weak eyesight. But if you have a device running Android, then there’s are several ways to get text more readable in general.
Navigate to the settings and select “Accessibility.” Scroll towards the bottom, it will be under the System heading.
- The first option is “Magnification Gestures.” This allows you to triple-tap the screen and then pan around with two or more fingers. If you want, you can even pinch-zoom anywhere.
- The other feature we want to point out, is the Large Text option. Here’s a side-by-side comparison. On the left is normal text, on the right, large (on some Android devices this option (called font size, or text size) can be found in the Settings – Display menu)
- The third option is the “High contrast”. It is available in Android 5 Lolipop system. This function will make stronger contrasts in menus and highlight the text (either with brighter or darker contours).
- Some more useful things are the inverted screen option and talkback for spoken feedback
