Can I change the font on my Roku Firestick?

My Nanny is 81 years old and has trouble reading the information displayed in on her Element 36” setup in her room with the Roku Firestick. Im looking for ways to adjust the font of either the tv itself or the font of the media displayed through the Firestick. Any ideas?

No TV or Roku allows you to change the font size. You can change your screen size under display settings and see if that helps. Are you trying to increase the font size on close caption? Or just the overall font size? 
It’s a Roku Streaming Stick. Firestick is made by Amazon

You made some great points, @StreamerSue.




While the Roku OS main menu does not have an option to make the font bigger, we do offer closed caption font sizing options as well as a text-to-speech screen reader to help Nanny find everything she's looking for.

We've left a couple of links to support articles that might be useful below:

We're always here if you have any questions.

Happy Streaming!
