A girl I know here uses frequently Emacs and she is 3 years. She likes
large letters and cannot read. For her is important to enlarge letters
and to type on keyboard. She does not know what letters and numbers
mean. I can tell she is new user of Emacs. 

It would be great for this new user to enable C-x-+ to and C-x-- to be
easier accessible (text-scale-adjust INC) and thus I propose to
include the text scale option into any setup wizards to come, in easy

The way how I have see it in the setup-wizard.el is too complicated. I
rather expect something like using + and - to set the default font
size so that young people can easier get along.
