Is the text size too large or too small?
You can change your text settings through your browser options:

In Internet Explorer, go to View > Text size and select your desired text size setting (eg, larger, smaller).

In Firefox, go to View > Text size and increase/decrease using Ctrl and + or -

If you have a scroll wheel on your mouse, you can hold down Ctrl and scroll back or forth to increase or decrease the font size in both IE and Firefox.

How to use the video player

To watch a video, click on the ‘play’ button at the bottom left of the video player. It is shaped like a small triangle.  You can pause the video once it is playing, by clicking on this button again, which will now be a ‘pause’ button, which looks like a number eleven – ‘11’. 

You can change the volume of the sound on the video by clicking on the ‘volume control’ button, on the bottom right of the video player.  If you click directly on the picture of the speaker, the sound will turn off completely. 

If you would like to see the video displayed in a full screen, you can click on the full screen button which is the last button on the bottom right of the video player.  To exit the full screen mode you can press ‘escape’ on the keyboard, or click the ‘close full screen’ button on the bottom right hand side of the video player.
