Arabic font size

Is it only me, or are the letters (and specifically the vowel symbols) almost too small/thin to read easily? It would be much easier to quickly identify the correct sound - especially when doing the pair match. This issue is both online and using the Android app.

I am blowing everything up to 200% so I can see the tiny differences.

Agree, I have a hard time reading the symbols. Some of them are different by only a small little mark

Much too small – I'm having to sit way too close to my (big) screen to see things clearly. Yes, I know I could blow it up, but surely the glyphs could be made larger.

Even when viewed on a laptop and zooming the page size, the Arabic characters in the notes are way too small and thin, especially for students trying to learn the nuances of the character shapes for the first time.

I have prior knowledge of the letters and diacritics, and see them on a daily basis, and STILL have trouble seeing if it's a fatha or a damma. It's just too thin to tell.

yes, really struggling with the font size, it makes my eyes hurt as I am concentrating so much just to be able to read it

Yes the Arabic font size is too small and thin to read. I am going to have to abandon my arabic learning unless there is an improvement coming up. Sorry duo you are trying to do a good job - so take a note of the feedback. also some of the pronunciations I heard in one course were not correct and there was no way to report it
