Re: Text unclear, garbled, unreadable

What do you mean by “Even typing this is really difficult.”? You are typing this in your browser, not in Skype, well? The text in the attached Skype image is clear but in small font size. If this is your problem, then there is not very much to do about this. A lot of peoples have complained about this. On high resolution computer screens the fonts used by Skype can be very small. The only place where you can select larger font is in the IM area: Tools -> Options -> IM & SMS -> IM appearance -> Change font.

Re: Text unclear, garbled, unreadable

Well I found a way round it I downloaded an extension add on  (No Squint) for firefox which lets you increase the text size etc set it to 120% and its now OK. I believe that the cause is in Skype and really needs sorting out as arnt we all on high res monitors now?. Thx for you help.
