Difficulty with settings for students with Low Vision


If the accessibility settings are adjusted on the computer/laptop for students with low vision to have their screen magnified or font size made larger, schoology headings are cut off at the top not allowing the student to visually access links and information.  Is there a way this could be adjusted so it just magnifies as the rest of the screen?

    Hi Sloan,

    Thank you for reaching out in the Schoology Community!

    We found that this issue occurs based on the device and browser settings. In this case, we recommend adjusting the browser font size settings. This way, the top navigation bar will not overlap. Please follow the instructions below according to your browser:

    1. Navigate to: chrome://settings/appearance
    2. Set font size to Medium (Recommend)


    1. Navigate to: about: preferences
    2. Under Languages and Appearance > Fonts & Colors, set font size to 16 or lower


    1. Navigate to Safari > Preferences > Advanced
    2. Under Accessibility, set "Never use font size smaller than" to 9 or lower

    Please let me know if you have any other questions!
