Font resizing and change contrast

Hi all

Just joined yesterday, and already have a query for you all.

What is the collective wisdom regarding *Change font size* and *Change
contrast* links on a web page?

My thinking is that they are not needed if the text and contrast are set in
the CSS and can be changed by the browser. Most people who need these
access adjustments will know how to alter it in the browser and, if they
don't, then they will struggle with most of the internet.

Of course, a link to instructions on how to change the browser settings
would be useful.

However, as I am blind, these access settings are superfluous to me, so I
might be coming at this from a rather bias perspective.
