Text ZOOM Premium

Description

Text ZOOM Premium provides users with the flexibility to modify the font size of a website’s text. Contrary to conventional browser zoom functions, this plugin modifies the text size without changing the paragraph’s width, hence offering the user a more natural and comfortable viewing experience. Settings are saved in the local storage. So when users revisit your page the font automatically resizes according to previous, individual adjustments.

To change the font size, this plugin provides the users with 2 easy options:

  • An adjustable, non-obstructive ZOOM-Widget on the left-hand-side of the webpage. It blends in and out automatically, without disrupting the website’s viewing experience.
  • keyboard shortcuts:
    • Alt +, Alt –, Alt 0 for Windows
    • Option +, Option –, Option 0 for Mac
  • To understand how it works you can also watch our Youtube Video (approx. 30 sec)

Why is this Plugin beneficial:

Many users face difficulties while reading due to font size issues. There are several reasons for it. For example, some users may be farsighted, or the display is too large, hence giving the impression that the text looks small and therefore putting unnecessary strain on the eyes.

Our research shows that approximately 20% of users perceive texts on websites being too small to read. By integrating our plugin into your website, the users would appreciate the accessibility options your website offers, hence giving the users more pleasant browsing experience. In return, this would decrease the bounce rate and increase the average dwell time on your website.
