How to Make a Font Darker in Adobe Reader

The application also allows business owners to create and publish documents that are locked, meaning the user cannot change the material. Adobe Reader has become a standard in locked document technology distributed over the Internet. The software also has accessibility options, allowing people who have vision problems to darken fonts for ease of use.
