Abstract: Converging factors for continued fractions $ K({a_n}/1)$ are used to enhance convergence either by accelerating the convergence process or by altering the region of convergence if the $ {a_n}$'s are functions of a complex variable. The first results concerning the use of converging factors to accelerate convergence in the important case $ {a_n} \to 0$ are presented in this paper.
