The ESV Study Bible also provides a wealth of additional resources.

Another unique feature is the inclusion of over 50 helpful articles on topics such as the authority and truthfulness of the Bible, reading the Bible for application, the Bible in worship and prayer, the reliability of the biblical manuscripts, the relationship between archaeology and the Bible, an overview of biblical theology, and many more.

Other key resources include a system of 80,000 cross references and a concordance (which together facilitate easy location of important words, passages, and biblical themes).

I actually found the answer after I asked the question. The write up on the Leather Cover Bible was incorrect. In the main write up it said 10.6 point but in the brief specs it said 9-10 point.

answer 2
In this case "Large Print" and "Larger Print" are used for Bibles that have the same text size. The exact text size of these Bibles is 10.6 point.

Does the publisher have plans to publish the ESV Study Bible in Giant Print ?

I love the ESV Study Bible but...I read a sample of the "larger print" ESV and this version needs improvement. The font is not at all large, too light, and too closely spaced. The notes are even worse. In contrast, I have a NIV large print which is far more legible than what the ESV appears to be. Is there ESV STUDY Bible software?

No, Crossway has not indicated that it intends to release a giant print ESV Study Bible. The font and size of the Bible are about the same as the NIV Large Print Study Bible. Every ESV Study Bible also comes with a code to access Crossway's online material.
