You can increase the size of the font by pressing CTRL along with the Plus Sign. To decrease the font size, press the CTRL and Minus Sign on your keyboard.

Tried using CTRL + on my Mac keyboard.

Does not increase the tax interview font on my iMac running Safari 14.0.3

That normally works but not with Mac Turbotax app.

At least not with Safari 14.0.3

Please try the following: In an app on your Mac, choose Format > Show Fonts or Format > Font > Show Fonts. In the Fonts window, click the Action pop-up menu , choose Edit Sizes, then do any of the following: Add a font size: Type a new size, then click the Add button . Change the values on the slider: Type new values in the Max.

OR

  1. Make all content larger: Choose Safari > Settings for This Website and choose an option from the Page Zoom pop-up menu, or choose View > Zoom In. ...
  2. Make only the text larger: Press Option while you choose View > Make Text Bigger.

I do not understand what you are saying.  I will explain

 

"In an app on your Mac, choose Format > Show Fonts or Format > Font > Show Fonts."

 

What is "an app on your Mac?"  Do you mean the Turbo Tax Program purchased on Disc?  Do you mean some other random program ("app?") on my Mac?  There is no "Format" drop-down menu either in the Turbotax program or in Safari.  The topics are :  "File  Edit  View Forms Easy Step Flags Window Help."  After looking at each subtopic 4 ties, I am able to say with confidence that there is no "Font" option.  

 

Secondly, you suggest "Make all content larger:  Choose Safari>Settings for this website. . . ."    Safari does not work for this purpose because Turbo Tax is neither open nor operating  in Safari.  Turbotax is its own program.  No Safari involved.  

 

Are you sure you are conversant with how the Turbotax Disc works in IOS, which is the operating system used in Apple computers.  Neither of your proposed solutions is possible on this computer.  I'm still looking at the -8 pt. type.
