Hi Tina,

The benefit is eliminating the need to remember that changing the text size
is possible through browser and/or operating system settings and how they
might go about making the changes; and circumventing issues to do with
following through with the process to implement the changes. This could be
due to any combination of memory, problem solving and attention
difficulties. Coming across a control in the page is a trigger and mechanism
by which to do it relatively easily.

Best regards,
Sofia
