Rich Text Box Controls with JAWS?

Good Afternoon,
I am working with our developers on a rich text box control that will work with JAWS/NVDA and various other screen readers.
There have been some questions from my team on whether low vision/blind will actually use such features (I.e. Font sizing, bold, etc).
As a low vision person myself, I hardly use these. However, I am not sure I represent the "majority."

Does anyone know of accessible rich text box plugins or widgets that are accessible? Is this necessary to keep us in compliance?
Would this be "usable" for our low vision/blind users?

Thank you in advance for your insight!
