Is there a way to increase the icon size (and the text below) without using zoom in iOS 7?  I am trying to help out someone who has moderate visual impairment that does not want to use zoom just to see the icons and their labels.

Hello Apple.
It seems you have gone to great lengths to improve accessibility in many areas of the iPad. Why was this obvious problem with icon text size missed?  (It's not with the Mac.). And for so long too.
Do you employ people with actual accessibility problems to help you do UI design?
I think too, that some buttons are too close for people who might have motor control problems.
I love my iPad but I fear as I age, the iPad might not keep up with me.

    It would depend on your definition of "Fix"
    Your iPod touch running OS 4.2 has a ZOOM feature which will enable you to see the screen more clearly.
    To turn Zoom on or off got to:
    Settings > General > Accessibility > Zoom and tap the Zoom On/Off switch.
    _To Zoom in or out_:
    Double-tap the screen with three fingers. By default, the screen is magnified 200 percent. If you manually change the magnification (by using the tap-and-drag gesture, described below), iPod touch automatically returns to that magnification when you zoom in by double-tapping with three fingers.
    Increase magnification: With three fingers, tap and drag toward the top of the screen (to increase magnification) or toward the bottom of the screen (to decrease magnification). The tap-and-drag gesture is similar to a double-tap, except you don’t lift your fingers on the second tap—instead, drag your fingers on the screen. Once you start dragging, you can drag with a single finger.
    _Move around the screen_:
    When zoomed in, drag or flick the screen with three fingers. Once you start dragging, you can drag with a single finger so that you can see more of the screen. Hold a single finger near the edge of the display to pan to that side of the screen image. Move your finger closer to the edge to pan more quickly. When you open a new screen, Zoom always goes to the top-middle of the screen.
    _Large Text_:
    Large Text lets you make the text larger in alerts, and in Calendar, Contacts, Mail, Messages, and Notes. You can choose 20-point, 24-point, 32-point, 40-point, 48-point, or 56-point text.
    Set the text size: In Settings, choose General > Accessibility, tap Large Text, then tap the text size you want.
    I hope this has helped a little - other than this option I think it pretty much is what it is.
    BTW - This information can be found on page 208 of the iPod Touch iOS 4.2 Users Guide.
    Best wishes..

  • Is there a way to increase the font size in the sidebar of Mac mail and the Finder when running OS 10.6.8?

    Is there a way to increase the font size in the sidebar of Mac mail and the Finder when running OS 10.6.8?

    The only way to increase the size of the onscreen text in the Finder Menu Bar and in the Side bar in Finder Windows is to change the screen resolution in the OS X Preferences Pane under the Displays icon.
    What Mac and screen size are you using?

  • IS THERE A WAY OF INCREASING THE VOLUME ON A USB DOWNLOADED WITH I TUNES? WHEN I PLAY MUSIC FROM IT IN MY BMW IT IS NOT VERY LOUD.

    IS THERE A WAY OF INCREASING THE VOLUME ON A THUMB DRIVE DOWNLOADED WITH ITUNES MUSIC? WHEN PLAYBACK ON BMW RADIO, EVEN WITH THE RADIO VOLUME AT MAX, MUSIC IS NOT VERY LOUD.

    Can't answer the query, since I don't use thumb drives and my volume's very responsive. That said, please don't post using ALL CAPS. That's considered shouting and is very disconcerting.

    Is there any way to increase the font size in the Creative Cloud. Using a Lenovo Yoga 2 with 14" screen and care barely see the menus.

    In short, no. There is no fix yet. They only barely acknowledge there is a problem. The "fix" is to enable 200% UI scaling which makes everything comically huge and unusable. This is pretty much of a joke. A really, really EXPENSIVE joke.

  • HT1338 Hi, Is there a way to increase the maximum size of a download? I'm trying to download Adobe premiere pro (1GB) and I'm getting an error message that says my maximum download is 10 MG

    Hi, Is there a way to increase the maximum size of a download? I'm trying to download Adobe premiere pro (1GB) and I'm getting an error message that says my maximum download is 10 MG

    That's between you and your internet service provider.  By the way, you posted to the 10.3 forum.  10.3 can't run on your MacBook Pro. Don't forget the following facts:
    b= bit
    B = Byte
    8 bits in a byte
    A typical DSL connection has 1 Mbps speed or 128 kBps speed.
    At that speed
    1 minute gives you 7.5 MB
    10 minutes gives you 75 MB
    100 minutes gives you 750 MB
    A typical cable connection can be 5 times faster although some are 30 times faster.
    A typical fiber connection is 15 times faster and some are 50 times faster.
    Ask what your speed is rated at.

    Is there a way to increase the size of the font in the tool windows in InDesign? I am having trouble seeing the info (the font is too small)

    Not possible. You'll need to go to your operating system and choose a screen resolution that displays the screen with larger pixels.
    Or get a new prescription for your glasses (seriously!)

  • Is there a way to increase the visual size of audio in Flash CS6?

    Basically, I'm trying to lip sync but I have a problem in that the audio "waves" are so small that I can barely see them, and I use these to base where I should put my lip frame at.
    So is there a way to increase the visual size of the audio so I can see it better?

    Chanege the size of the frame

  • Is there a way to increase the number of layers in PS touch for iPad? Can Adobe do something about this?

    Is there a way to increase the number of layers in PS touch for iPad? Can Adobe do something about this?  I have been using PS touch for iPad for a few years and ALWAYS end up with a message that I have reached the maximum allowable number of layers.  not to mention of course a simple tool for drawing straight lines which is a must.  I may be missing something.  I would have imagined that a respectable company like Adobe would have added over the years a small upgrade to solve these issues.
    thanks. 

    Hi Patrick,
    I'm working on a 30" monitor, so it's effectively 2560x1600.  It only seems to be showing 2 tracks at a time, unless there is a preference or setting I'm missing that I can't seem to find in the documentation.  Here is a screenshot:
    I don't see any areas for expanding the timeline.  I can scroll vertically in the timeline, but I can't seem to actually get a larger static vertical area for showing more tracks at once.  The only vertical resizing widget is to expand the bottom or top panels, not the timeline.
    Thanks,
    Jason
