Re: WCAG 1.4.4 Resizing Text and Zoom

I test with ctrl++ or cmd++ in the browser and see how the content reacts.
1.4.4 says there should be no loss of "content or functionality". 1.4.4
does not say that you (the page author) must provide a way to scale the
text. That is, you don't need to provide a "font increase" button if the
browser doesn't support ctrl++.

You could also test 1.4.4 by using the browser's font settings but that's
more work. Using ctrl++ is faster and easier but 1.4.4 doesn't tell you
how you should test it.
