GEDCOM Validator supports several accessibility features to help all users make best use of the program.

Display zoom

With display zoom, you can customise the size of the text and controls in GEDCOM Validator in real time.  This helps to make things easier to read on high resolution screens and gives easier navigation on touch screens.

You can change the zoom level with special keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl++ to increase, Ctrl-- to decrease and Ctrl+0 to restore) or manually in Tools>Options>Themes.  The default setting is 100% which represents no zoom and you can increase this up to 500% according to your needs.

High DPI

In Windows® you can make the text larger and smaller whilst maintaining the display resolution.  This setting applies to all applications and generally requires you to sign out again each time you change the setting.  GEDCOM Validator is high DPI aware and supports per monitor DPI in Windows 8.1 and later.


GEDCOM Validator supports the OpenDyslexic typeface which is a new open sourced font created to increase readability for readers with dyslexia. It can be downloaded from  Once installed you can use Ctrl+D to toggle between OpenDyslexic and the default font. A dyslexic theme is also available which uses a neutral cream coloured background for all screen elements to reduce glare. You can change the application theme using the Themes menu.

High contrast themes

GEDCOM Validator supports several high contrast themes which closely mirror the high contrast themes supported by Windows.  High contrast themes heighten the colour contrast of some text and images on your computer screen, making those items more distinct and easier to identify.  You can change the application theme in Tools>Options>Themes.
