FAQ (Frequently Asked Question)

The most frequently asked question we receive is how to ‘enlarge’ the fonts of the course reading material in the SmartLook Viewer. When you click on the course material to read in Step 2, it will open in the SmartLook Viewer. Once opened click with your mouse directly on the face of the document. This will enlarge the document. Once in this mode, at the top of the document, you will see a ‘slider’ bar with a – and + sign at each end. The fonts can be enlarged tenfold using this slider bar. The SmartLook Viewer was actually installed to benefit our ‘visually impaired’customers.
