Technically not the correct thread since I am still using FTM2012, however. I have had the exact same problem reading on-screen fonts - particularly when trying to edit citations and such. I resolved it eventually by using the Windows accessibility option of Magnifier. I have the Magnifier pinned to my taskbar (since I only need it for FTM2012, it can be on all the time) and I have the settings to 200% magnification, view-docked (which puts it across the top of the screen in a fixed position) and in the settings I have follow the mouse pointer and get the magnifier to follow the text insertion point. After a minute or so practice you get used to watching the text at the top of the screen when you are typing
