How to Fix the Problem

Set the maximum-scale to 2.0.

The Algorithm, in Simple Terms

Engine scans the HTML <head> element for a <meta name="viewport"> which contains maximum-scale attribute with a value less than 2.0.

Why Is it Important?

The visually impaired user should be able to scale the text to 200%.

Code Example

Correct use of viewport meta: <meta name="viewport" content="initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=2">
