I am setting up a mac for an aunt who needs large fonts to read, I have set up Safari correctly but there is a problem.

When I print the text comes out at the original font size, not the enlarged size displayed.

Is there any way to configure CUPS so that if it ever spots a font below 18it will increase the font size to 18

Unlikely. But you shouldn't specify what software you want to use to solve your problem: instead, state what OS you're running on, and allow us to suggest the software you should use. Voted -1. – unforgettableid Jan 1 '13 at 2:12
Try Mozilla Firefox's minimum-font-size feature. Does it solve your problem? – unforgettableid Jan 1 '13 at 2:13

No. CUPS is not responsible for the content, merely for shuffling the print data around. Configure the application to require using a minimum font size when printing.
