Use Hover Text on Mac
When you enable Hover Text on your Mac, you can move the pointer over something on the screen — for example, text, an input field, a menu item, or a button — and display a high-resolution zoomed version of it in a separate window.
Turn on and customise Hover Text
On your Mac, choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click Accessibility , then click Zoom.
Select Enable Hover Text.
If you want to customise Hover Text, click Options. For example, you can specify:
The position of the window when you enter text. Click the “Text-entry location” pop-up menu, then choose a location. If you don’t want the window shown when you enter text, choose None.
The modifier key you press to activate Hover Text. Click the “Activation modifier” pop-up menu, then choose a key. By default, you can press the Command key to activate Hover Text.
You can lock the window so it’s shown automatically when you move the pointer over an item; for example, when filling out a form. Select the “Activation lock” tick box. Then when you need to lock or unlock the window, quickly press the selected modifier key three times.
The colours used for the text shown in the window and the window itself. Click Colours, then click the pop-up menus to choose a colour or to create a custom colour.
Use Hover Text
Move the pointer over an item on the screen, then press the activation modifier (by default, the Command key) to display the Hover Text window.
If you set the option to be able to lock the window, quickly press the modifier key three times to keep the Hover Text window on the screen. When you don’t need to show it, quickly press the key three times again.
If you chose to show the text entry window, a window appears at the location you specified, such as the top-left corner of the screen, whenever you’re in a text entry field or area. As you type, a larger version of what you’re typing is displayed in the window.
