    Apple seem to have overlooked a massive accessibility issue!

    The supply huge high-res brilliant beautiful displays, so i want all the resolution i can get. Downside, small text.

    Accessibility has a seeing section, I can zoom the screen so the cursor fills the entire 27" display. Make it high contrast so its easier to see, and get my mac to read stuff aloud to me. GREAT for a blind person. But how do i MAKE THE DAMN TEXT BIGGER!
    I don't want to affect the aesthetics of my mac, just make the text bigger system wide, so its a bit easier to see.

    Like the file, edit, history.
    I know i can make individual texts bigger, like individually increase the size of each message in mail (cmd+=) or zoom in safari, and make labels bigger in finder. But what about the rest.

    PS i tried tinkertool, but to no great avail.

    Well I don't want to decrease the resolution, as whats the point of buying a crystal clear high-res display, to view hazy fluffy text.

    The rumour looks interesting, how it will re-render text to be clear. This is a good idea, but a simple, increase system text size would be ideal.
