The present invention is a method of enhancing the readability of FrameMaker.RTM. for a visually-impaired user by determining whether or not a file named ".maker.large" exists in the user's $HOME directory. If ".maker.large" exists in the user's $HOME directory then setting an environmental variable $EZRIDER to a pathname $FMHOME/fdk/NSAapps.large of a directory containing enlarged EASYRIDER API client files. If ".maker.large" is not in the user's $HOME directory then setting the environmental variable $EZRIDER to the pathname $FMHOME/fdk/NSAapps of a directory containing unenlarged EASYRIDER client files. If the second step was performed then setting X Window Large Display Resources to RESOURCE_MANAGER property of a root window of screen 0 and determining whether or not an X resource "maker.api.preferences.autoApply" is set to true in $HOME/.Xdefaults. If "maker.api.preferences.autoApply" is set to true then turning on a notification for FrameMakert.RTM. to contact the user's Personal Preferences client; initializing the EASYRIDER API client files; and initializing FrameMaker.RTM. product dialogs.Method of efficiently increasing readability of framemaker graphical user interface667096730/12/200326/02/200120031,037Mezei; Bruce W.US Patent and Trademark OfficeGoogle Patent Searchpatentimages.storage.googleapis.com/US6670967B2/US06670967-20031230-D00000.pngUniqueapi client fileshome directoryusermaker.largegraphical user interfaceeasyrider api clientpersonal preferences clienteasyrider client fileswindowframemaker.rtm
