I’m a low-vision person. I want to print research papers to read. But the font size is very small for me. Is there any way to make it bigger and print it?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

If the paper is in PDF (the standard) you can print using the Poster option. You will need to print the page in a bigger size, to make it fit in multiple pages.
You can try to convert the PDF to word and enlarge the font before printing, but many don't convert well.
If the paper in question has been submitted to the Arxiv as a LaTeX source, you can download its source (other formats in the sidepanel → source), change the font size to your liking, compile the result and print it. This also applies to other aspects affecting readability such as the font itself, the number of columns, and the image size.
Another option that has not been suggested yet is printing to A3 paper, which makes the document larger by a factor 1.414. This is similar to the poster option mentioned in Cochise's answer.
