Reading Assistance

Enlarging character size

On all the pages of our website, you can enlarge the character size.
If you are on PC, use the CTRL + + key combination to enlarge the size of the characters. The CTRL + - key combination allows you to reduce the size of the characters. If you press successively on these buttons you can increase or decrease the size of the characters.
Also note that the CTRL + 0 key combination (the "zero" number) allows you to revert to the default text size.
For Mac users, you just need to follow the same steps as above by replacing the CTRL key with the CMD key to get the same results.
