Text Resizing

If you have a general problem with the size of text on websites (ours and others) there are four ways of increasing the size:

  1. Change Operating System Preferences
    You can change settings within Windows or Macintosh operating system to increase the size of text used - this makes all text on your computer larger (not just websites)
  2. Change Browser Preferences
    You can change settings within your browser to increase the default size of "normal" text - this has the effect of enlarging the text on all the websites that you visit (provided those websites have been built in an accessible way)
    • Internet Explorer 6
      From the top menu bar, select View and point to Text size
    • Internet Explorer 7
      From the menu bar underneath the search field, select Page and point to Text size
    • Mozilla, Firefox and most other browsers (PC)
      Hold down the CTRL key and press + Decrease text size: Hold down the CTRL key and press -
    • Macintosh (Safari, Firefox and most other browsers)
      Hold down the Command key and press + Decrease text size: Hold down the Command key and press -
  3. Zoom-in (Modern Browsers only)
    You can use modern browsers to enlarge any web-page - the effect is to zoom-in to the page just like enlarging an image. All "modern" browsers support this feature: Mozilla, Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer 8 onwards (but unfortunately not Internet Explorer versions 6 or 7)
  4. Change Size only for this Website
    You can use the font enlargement controls on this page to increase the text size of this website (which only effects this website)

This can be activated through the 'Text larger / smaller' links above. Please note, our text resizing feature is dependent on Javascript being turned on.

Where our text resizing feature is not available, you can achieve the same result independently by following these instructions:

  • From the outset Abdul reassured me, talked me through everything and put my mind at ease that I was in the best possible hands at a time of stress and panic. The process from our initial meeting was seamless and Abdul put plans in place for me to receive the best possible outcome in court with some ground work from myself. I honestly can't thank Abdul enough for his services, although he was there in a professional manner he also showed great understanding of my situation and helped me through a difficult time.

I shall take great care and effort in my feed back and you truly deserve as much business as you can manage, again and truly many thanks and congratulations all round.

  • You certainly know what you are doing in court, your knowledge, experience and the delicate way in which you handled the magistrates really made the difference. It was my first time in front of a magistrate and it was clear to see that it could so easily have gone either way.

  • I was put in touch with Abdul at DFR solicitors by a colleague. He did not only put me at ease but also was in touch with my wife and explained the process etc. to her. It was not a pleasant experience attending court etc. but it was made easier thanks to Abdul's professionalism, thoroughness and reassurance. Abdul is a specialist in this field - it is all he deals with.
