    Here, we have a list of the magnification gestures and we can show you how to use them.
    The first thing we need to do is make sure that this function is turned on. Currently, we can see that it is turned off in this black bar at the top of the screen. We can see that here is an icon here and it says the word "OFF" inside.

    Now we can show you how to use the magnification gestures but first, we are going to read this information to you.
    It says here: "When this feature is turned on, you can zoom in and out by triple-tapping the screen". So, this is the first thing we can do. Triple-tap the screen and now we can see that we have zoomed in.

    If we want to zoom out, triple-tap again and we can see that we have zoomed out.
    So to zoom in, triple tap, and to zoom out, triple tap.

    The second part says, "While zoomed in, you can:
    Pan: Drag two or more fingers across the screen" and "Adjust zoom level: Pinch two or more fingers together or spread them apart". What we can do then, is zoom in by triple tapping the screen.

    If we use just one finger, we can see that there is no panning.
    It is not going side to side, we can only go up and down. What we need to do is use two fingers. Use two fingers and we can see that we can pan. To pan means to go side to side so we can see more information.

    Now we have returned to the normal view.
    The next option says: "You can also temporarily magnify what's under your finger by triple-tapping and holding. In this magnified state, you can drag your finger to explore different parts of the screen. Lift your finger to return to your previous state". So, let's triple tap and then keep our finger pressed down. Here, we can see that the finger is still held down. We have zoomed in and we can look around by moving our finger as if our finger was a magnifying glass. We can zoom around and move from place to place very easily.

    The next part of this says:
