    Users should be able to increase the font size on canvas pages, quizzes, discussions, etc. This option should be remembered across devices.



    - Browser zoom is insufficient and does not work in cases when teachers specify a font size within a WYSIWYG editor. This applies a <span style="..."> tag directly to the questions and answer options in quizzes and does not allow browser zoom to increase the font-size, only the surrounding box size.

    - Small font size is particularly troublesome when one is using a high-resolution display and studying a language course when it becomes necessary to distinguish between accent marks that are often too small to see. 

    - This also has assessability ramifications for those with poor eyesight.
