Setting text sizes: regular vs zoom views on devices/browsers

I have been checking my website all my different devices and I just realized I’ve got Zoom enabled on my iPhone. I think I have a minimum text size limit my browser as well.

Does anyone has an opinion of how you should set your text size for mass audiences… should I set it based on regular view? Obviously I know people can also determine font sizes and zoomed browser view as well…

Any developers or builders have an opinion?


Set for regular view always, all responsive sites (including foundation) set the viewport like this:

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, shrink-to-fit=no">

People will zoom and override the font size (they can do that on desktops as well) as they need.

thanks, Doug. So I should put that code in my site wide header?

The meta tag above should already be in your header from foundations.
