Large type (Mobi/CyBook)?

I recently purchased a CyBook for my mother, who has macular degeneration and requires about 48 point type to read comfortably.

The UBook reader supports large type, up to 64 points, but it does not support digital rights management.

The Mobi reader does support DRM, but I can't figure out any way to change its built-in font sizes, which seem to max out at around 16 or 18 points.

Am I overlooking something here?

Bob

No, you are right. Mobipocket's Mobireader only supports a few font size ranges with the built-in fonts. You may want to check this page where it is explained how you can install other fonts. Perhaps there is one that comes in a larger size.

I can install other fonts, simply by copying them to C:\Windows\Fonts, but MobiReader insists on using the same font sizes regardless of the font family that is selected. I need to be to able to specify larger font sizes; selecting the "Largest" for Font size yields a font that is way too small for my purposes.
