Someone with poor eyesight will have trouble with every PC
application that has a UI with text, and every web page.

The fonts in the default Roundcube theme aren't any smaller than

Microsoft Windows allows you to increase the UI font size globally;
does the Roundcube UI not respond to this?

There are also font size settings in Firefox (separate from the
scale change via Ctrl-{+/-/wheel}.
