Arabic fonts too small

I’m thrilled that Duolingo offers Arabic now. However, the tiny Arabic font used in translation and matching exercises make it very difficult to see the really tiny markings that distinguish consonants and convey vowel sounds. Please enlarge! I tried changing my iPhone’s character settings but it didn’t effect Duo’s graphics.

Yea this is very annoying and it is not just a problem on duolingo i use a lot of computer programs and websites in arabic but the letters can be very hard to read on them i already struggle with this script.

The same problem. I learn Arabic only with PC and zoom it to 150 %.

I had the same problem. Now, I installed an extension to the browser that enhances arabic script. It's way more legible, althought a bit uglier. The one I'm using is Wudooh.

You can choose the font that Wadooh uses. You can select (no font) and it will not change the font, just enlarge it.
