Increasing Caption and Chat Font Size in Zoom

Posted November 5th, 2020 at 7:14 pm.

If you are have difficulty viewing the chat messages or captions when using Zoom on a computer, you can increase the font size:

  1. Open the Zoom app on your computer
  2. Click on your profile picture or initials and choose Settings from the drop-down menu.

    1. Click Accessibility in the left sidebar.
    2. Adjust the size of Closed Captions by dragging the slider bar.
    3. Adjust the Chat Display Size by entering a percentage. During a meeting you can also adjust the Chat font size by pressing Ctrl+ and Ctrl- (PC) or Command+ and Command- (Mac) on your keyboard.

These options aren’t available in the Zoom mobile app, but you can use your device’s font and accessibility settings to control the size instead.
