    Edwin!
    Make a nice theme for those with visual impairments PLEASE!
    Help out an old timer.

    Contrast is a big issue, need more, fonts vs background for instance so they pop out.
    Dark colors blend too much with black, nothing suble then.
    So for instance grey font colors to me is like black on black.

    Anyways what ya think!

    If you have not already, you can download, unblock and run @Brink's reg files to add "Personalization Classic" to your right click context menu for desktop.
    Then, navigate to Color and Appearance, in that additional menu while in High Contrast Mode, then you will be able to adjust colors

    Yes I did have that, but changing theses colors had no effect on applications.
    iTunes for instance is still the same. However on the plus side I did make my
    text a brighter white against the black background and it looks nicer now to me.
    Thank you!

    There was a group of updates a while back for Office 07 that cream pied my ability to use High Contrast themes. Even after removing that group of 33 updates and Office it still has not repaired.
