Maximum Accessibility: Making Your Web Site More Usable for Everyone

Customising Netscape 6

In Netscape 6 you can change the default options via EDIT >> PREFERENCES.

Select the Appearance Category to edit font and color settings. You can disable Style Sheets via the Advanced Category.

Apparently you can specify your own style sheet in Netscape 6 but I can't figure out how to do it. If you know how please let me know.

Selecting VIEW >> Text Size allows you to alter the text size. You can choose a percentage change or you can make the text larger or smaller.

You can also change the font size by using the following keyboard shortcuts.

  • Ctrl + ] to enlarge the font size
  • Ctrl + [ to reduce the font size.

To adjust the readability of fonts, select from the drop-down list the dots per inch (dpi) for displaying web pages. Select "Other" to open the Calibrate Resolution dialog box. This allows you to calibrate your screen resolution by measuring how long a line appears on your screen (you'll need a ruler). Increased screen resolution may improve the readability of your text.

Graphics can be turned off via the Privacy & Security Category in Preferences.
