Screen magnification software
If you change the settings and find that this does not magnify the text enough to be useful, then it is worth investigating screen magnification software.
Screen magnification can magnify up to 64 times. Prices vary depending on features, such as whether speech support is built into the program. Some of the more popular products include Lunar, MAGic and Zoomtext.
