Changing Text Sizes

The default user interface design allows the resizing of text contained in the main body of the page using your web browser.

The method you use to resize the default text size varies between browsers. Below we demonstrate how to change text size on the three main browsers; Internet explorer, Firefox and Opera.

Explorer

In Explorer it is possible to 'zoom' the text by holding down the Ctrl key and using your mouse wheel. Alternatively these options can also be found under view > text size. The pages are designed to look their best using the 'medium' setting. Please note that it may not be possible to change the size of all text on every page. It is not possible to change graphics in this way.

Explorer text sizes

Firefox

In Firefox you can select to increase or decrease text size by pressing CTRL + or CTRL - respectively. Alternatively these options can also be found under view > text size.

Firefox text sizes

Opera

In Opera you can select to increase or decrease text size by pressing CTRL + or CTRL - respectively. Alternatively these options can also be found under view > zoom.

Opera text sizes


Help for those with motor impairments

Many people also suffer from some form of motor control problem that can make using a mouse very difficult. Because of this, we have added "access keys" to this site. These act as shortcuts to key links on the page. The access keys are as follows:

1 - Return to the homepage
2 - Instruments of Communion
3 - ACC Ministries
4 - Networks
5 - Resources
6 - Help Pages
p - Printer friendly page
e - Email page to friend
s - Skip to main content on page

When sections contain multiple pages

b - Page back
n - Page forward (next Page)

To use an access key hold down the ALT key on your keyboard and press the appropriate number or letter listed above. On most browsers, this will immediately jump you to the appropriate page. However, if you are using Internet Explorer you will then need to press RETURN to active the link.

Printer Friendly Pages

Many pages are now available in a printer friendly version - click on the printer icon'  Print this page' that appears on the top - right of most pages to see a simplified page layout. Use the "Print Preview" option from the File menu to see how the page will look when printed. You can then print the page as normal.
