Here are some tips for you to make sure you have the best possible experience on the website and in the apps.
 
Increase the font size on NYTimes.com
There are two ways to increase the font size for The New York Times website.
Adjust browser font settings
You can adjust the font settings in your browser to always use a specific size. This method will be retained, and all browser windows and tabs will use this size.
Here are instructions for doing this with different browsers:
Google Chrome
Windows Internet Explorer 11
Firefox
Microsoft Edge
Safari
Opera
Note: Some websites will not display the desired font size even after adjusting browser font settings. Use the quick font size change solution to increase font size.
Zoom to increase page size
You can quickly zoom in to change the font size for your current browser window or tab. This method is a temporary solution, and font size may not be retained if you open another tab or window.
Here are instructions for doing this with different operating systems: 
Windows users: Press the CTRL and + keys to zoom in, and the CTRL and - keys to zoom out.
MacOS users: Press the CMD and + keys to zoom in, and the CMD and - keys to zoom out.
