Thanks to Pansyface

EVER SINCE THE SITE REDESIGN DEBACLE, MY ATTENTION HAS BEEN DRAWN TO THE NUMBER OF WEBSITES USING GREY FONT.  I WAS TRYING TO BEGIN A WORDPRESS BLOG AND IT WAS HARD TO FIND A STYLE THAT HAD HIGH CONTRAST OPTIONS.

I'VE ALSO WRITTEN TO AN ONLINE LITERARY JOURNAL (SPECIALISING IN HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS) AND TO A POLITICIAN WHOSE WEBSITE WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR ANYONE WITH THOSE SORTS OF VISUAL IMPAIRMENTS TO USE.  

IT WASN'T SOMETHING I WAS TOO AWARE OF BEFORE BUT YOU HAVE OPENED MY EYES, SO TO SPEAK.

    NO NEED TO SHOUT WATERY

    I CAN READ THE NORMAL TEXT (JUST, IT IS VERY THIN).

    I TYPE IN CAPITALS BECAUSE THE TEXT IN THE BOX WHERE YOU TYPE IS SMALLER THAN HOW IT TURNS OUT ON THE PAGE HERE.

    You can jusr type mornally though.

    YES, SOME WEBSITES ARE AWFUL. WAITROSE HAS A PHONE NUMBER FOR YOU TO PHINE IF THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE STUFF THEY HAVE DELIVERED. IT IS GREEN NUMBERS ON A BLUE BACKGROUND. JUST AS WELL I HAVE NEVER NEEDED TO USE IT AS IT IS COMPLETELY ILLEGIBLE.

    Totally agree with the points here.

    My husband has a red / brown / green problem .... apparently more common in men.

    Had heaps of fun recently when BT (don't start me ...) asked him to say if the green light or the red light on the router was flashing ... he told them he couldn't say and would have to find me to ask.

    We built our own house and he did all the wiring ... mmmm ... should I be worrying?

    Bee,
