Customization of text

  • Problem: Text may be too small, not the right color, wrong font, or displeasing.
  • Proposed solution: Allow for users to set default font sizes, text colors (including normal, link, visited, and redlink colors). Text width may also be more granular instead of all or regular.
  • Who would benefit: Everyone because this brings greater accessibility.
  • More comments: I'd like for the settings to be available on each page, but also provide an opt out so the menu only is in the settings area.

  • Yes more like a user preference. I forgot that custom CSS was available, but that isn't accessible to those logged out, or to those who only read. Lots of websites have accesibility menus where you can change how the site looks. Wikimedia should be no different. --JackFromWisconsin (talk) 16:23, 26 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]
