    The comments in that article bring up that there's a user setting to scale only the text. For the history, read:

    Respecting a legacy setting just because it exists is dogmatic though. The accessibility scenario is simple. People with low vision need:

    • Things to be bigger (at a minimum, text)
    • No horizontal scrolling (it's very hard to read quickly while panning back and forth)

    Normal browser zoom + responsive design meet those requirements without issue. There's no need to support the large text settings as well.
