I have quite bad eyes (I get money off my glasses they're that bad) and so I find a lot of software hard to use. Also, I can't seem to cope with the light-on-dark themes of many forums. I get headaches and just have to stop or use the old ctrl-alt-apple-8 Mac trick. electro-music is lovely as it's very easy for me to read! thumb up

At the same time, in no way am I functionally blind - I don't need audio-assist workarounds. I just wish software developers gave more user options on things like font style / size, UI placement. Some do but tweaking invariably breaks the usability in some other way. Sad

Sooo... that's my 2p!

Jyoti, wouldn't a screen-magnifier help with non-accessible software? I used to know and work with people who needed this type of magnification, which is how I thought of it.

Yep, I've tried them in the past. But it's more that my severe astigmatism means I have quite bizarre colour tolerances. So, the magnifier works for my myopia but not for the other head-hurty things.

But thanks for the tip, anyhow! Smile
