Utility for converting printouts to a large font

Utility for converting printouts to a large font

My grandmother would like to be able to print articles from the web in large type, so that any visually impaired people she distributes the printouts to will have a better chance at reading them. She uses IE7 on Windows XP.

I'm a "Granny" and I print pages quite often, several every day, and most from IE8. Using "PrintWhatYouLike" was so confusing, sorry, but I found that if you right-click the page and select Print Preview, there is a box at the top that says "Shrink to fit." Click that box and you'll see that you have the option to adjust the view on the page up to whatever percentage you want. This enlarges the text, but also may be too much to fit on the page, so you may have to adjust margins of the pages, or select text to print and make sure it fits.

"You could display the font of the web pages to be bigger, then print from there. Go to:

View -> Text Size -> Largest

Makes the page and printouts noticeably larger."
