Is there any way to alter the font size used in displaying ATS? I recently switched to 1280x1024 monitor resolution, which is far more convenient for a lot of other programs, and I've tried increasing the font size through Internet Explorer, but it doesn't affect many fonts within web pages.

Is there an option for high-resolution users, or shall I resign myself to eventual blindness?

Hi Odd,

You can over ride the site specified settings in IE by going to the tools menu, then to options, then to the general tab. There is a button at the bottom called accessibility. Click it and you will see the options you are looking for, like over ride of the site's specified font sizes.

Already tried that... unfortunately, it doesn't seem to affect ATS's display, for whatever reason.

Thanks anyway, though, I'll make do somehow

Switch to FireFox, you can increase the fontsize ALOT. Yesterday I just sat here making the ATS at the beginning of WebMail fill up an entire screen. FireFox also gives you a popup blocker, and tabbed browsing, without the exploits and holes available for IE.

Really, Did you go back to the view menu, then text size menu, after turning on the disability over ride?
I just did it in that order and was able to change the font size to a really big size. I'm using a laptop with the display at 1400x1050 and IE 6.
Maybe you need to close the browser and re-open with the new settings.

do you know how I can block popups in other browsers, like IE or Opera?
I know this only from Safari the Mac browser.

Ah, I overlooked the disability override... thanks a lot, that got it



edit: I've tried Firefox in the past, and I liked it except for the fact that I couldn't get Flash to run properly... and what is life without flash animation?

If you have the most recent Service Pack installed for Windows XP, Internet Explorer has an in-built pop-up blocker which works quite well. There is always the alternative of downloading one of the numerous third-party programs available on the web.

Opera has in-built pop-up management as well, available from File -> Preferences -> Popups

What version were you running? FireFox 1.0 has been released and its MUCH easier to get your needed plugins (Java, Flash and Shockwave).

Glad to help...

There are a number of addons, my two fav are Google search bar and IESpell (www.iespell.com...)

I have FireFox installed, but find my self going back to IE. There just seems to be alot of sites it doesn't play well with. Especially at work, Our intranet sites use alot of special scripting that won't run in FireFox.
Still, it's a nice browser.
