When viewing the OSM map, the street names etc. are written in a font size which is too small for me. I cannot read the street names. How can I change the font size to make them bigger? Thanks.

You cannot change the font size in the map on the OSM web site (other than requesting that your browser enlarge all images which many browser do when you press Ctrl+).

For larger fonts, you will either have to render your own map (requires some software setup, different ways you can do it, use search field above to find out more), or look around for someone offering an OSM-based map that uses different font sizes. The map compare service at bbbike.org has a ton of map styles, maybe one of them suits you better. Those with OSM in their title are renderd from OSM, the others are from a different source. Here's a map compare permalink with 8 different OSM-based maps.
