Great app, my older grandparents have poor vision and now are more confident on the computer :)

I was prepared to trial this (2 weeks free), in spite of the fact that the developer is asking too much money for the purchase). HOWEVER he is insisting we GIVE OUR CARD DETAILS, at the beginning of the two eek trial. The only valid reason for that is - he gains extra funds from absent minded, elderly people who did not intend to continue after the 2 weeks were finished. I challenge anyone to tell me - why wouldn't it be ok for us to give card details when we finally decide to make the purcha... Show more

Hi - This is a great benefit to me, so leaving my positive review below but want to ask whether the darker text can be turned on for Google geneally? I use Windows 11 and that is clearly meant for eagles and hawks as the type is vanishing small and faint. I will pay a second fee to be able to darken everything. Please respond. Meanwhile for others, my review is below. highly recommended. I have been using this for some months and I could not read my daily onlife newspaper without it. ... Show more

I purchased this product for my wife to use on her Chromebook so that she could navigate easily. She has severe vision problems that can not be addressed with just the existing accessibility options available. The product was paid for and no email with a product key arrived. I went to the website to obtain the product key and after registering her and then searching for the purchase in every conceivable place, still no product key. An email was sent yet still no response. At this time I ... Show more

There is no way to test the extension, it doesn't work. Writes that you need to enter some kind of license key.

My grandparents have struggled with chromes default font size so I purchased this for them. It is extremely helpful and straightforward for them to use. If you have loved ones that struggle reading chromes font size, I would highly recommend this extension.

I'm glad to hear that it was easy for them to use. Many of the current users were introduced to Make Chrome Text Black by their children and grandchildren.

For those that want a free extension, try "Darken text" (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/darken-text/kmonkhbnghcmlhgbmlpagpapfomioidg) or "A+ FontSize Changer Lite" (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/a%2B-fontsize-changer-lite/ckihgechpahhpompcinglebkgcdgpkil) or any of the other extensions in the "Related" section above. I charge for this because I guarantee it's the best font changing extension you'll use. If there was a better extension, I'd be using that instead of this. But the fact of the matter is that there isn't. In saying that, please try the free extensions first before paying for this. There's plenty in the Google Web Store. You might find the perfect one for you. But if you get sick of extensions that are as bad as the sites you're trying to fix, features that don't make sense, and extensions that just don't work how they should, come back and give this a try. I offer a full 100% refund within 60 days of purchase no questions asked.

Alright, I can edit this now! My old review was a bit harsh so it's deleted. Do note that this extension isn't free. I personally won't try anything without a free trial. I don't want to hurt the developer so 5 stars in hopes they consider changing things. I'm fine with banner ads in a freebie version. :)

Hi Salmonson, this is an email that I sent to Rockey (the other person that replied to this review) earlier this year. Rockey sent me an email that essentially said what you've said. "Thanks for your feedback. I mean this genuinely, since it helps me improve my extension and how I interact with the community. If no one tells me, I'll never know. This is how people are meant to find the extension: https://makechrometextblack.com/. It's a site I created for it which has a link to the extension on the Google Web Store. It clearly details that the extension is a paid subscription. I think people stumbled across the extension on the Google Web Store instead of from my site. This probably led them to believe the extension was free, since they were able to download it. Instead, they were hit with a "Must purchase a license key" message. This is not the experience I want people to have with my extension. It's simply bad business to upset potential customers who are expecting one thing and getting another. However, Google doesn't offer an option for labelling the extension as "Paid Only". If I could notify uses that a license key purchase was required before they installed the extensions, I would do that. Also, because of the reviews on the extension I changed the extension description to include ** THIS EXTENSION REQUIRES A SUBSCRIPTION PURCHASE ** at the top."

needs a license? Should maybe say that in the description

You're right. The description was updated earlier this year to state that the extension requires a subscription purchase.
