How do I change the reading fonts in PB 912?

Hello, have managed to change fonts on the device (menus) using the available fonts, and the size of the font in the reader. But although the font in the menus has changed the reader keep on using the same font, and I can't see any way to change the font in the readers little square menu.

The original font was OK for me, but having lent the 912 to my parents I notice that they don't use it, because when increasing the original font size it's still less readable than smaller print on paper!!! A very bad choice of font then, as readers ought to be perfect for persons with not so good sight. Having been told so by my parents I do notice that the big letters don't get more readable than the small ones.

So how do I change the reading fonts in PB 912?

Have you checked Tips and tricks for PocketBook? Point 1 says:

You can install your own fonts on the device. Just connect the device to the PC using supplied USB cable. Copy your fonts to the [Letter]:\system\fonts\ directory
You have to change folder options to see the system folder (File->Folder Options->View tab->uncheck hide protected operating system files) in windows.

Of course!

Of course that I looked through Tips and Tricks!

I don't want new fonts, at least not now, I just want that when I change fonts for the Pocketbook the fonts also get changed in the reader, the book. As I said the fonts get changed in the menu of the Pocketbook, but for the reader, the book, the font stays the same.

When I change fonts and try to open the book that was read, the timeglass opens for several minutes, but the book never opens. When I try to open the same book again after the timeglass has disappeared, it doesn't open, and when I open another book it's still in the same old font.

So how do I change fonts in the reader, the book?

Although it may seem that I'm not thankful for your answer, I am as it proved that my question needed additional information.

I think it depends on which app you are using to read with. Some won't override fonts embedded in epubs, others will. Try installing coolreader; I'm pretty sure it allows you to choose another font, even if an embedded font is provided. Otherwise, you'll probably have to open and edit the CSS inside the epub to change which font is used.
