Text Spacing (WCAG SC 1.4.12)

Text can get extra whitespace between letters and words; also line height and spacing between paragraphs should keep content and functions available.

Use the Text Spacing Bookmarklet.

If that's not working add the following code to the page via your browser.

* {
 line-height: 1.5 !important;
 letter-spacing: 0.12em !important;
 word-spacing: 0.16em !important;

 margin-bottom: 2em !important;
