Expanding possibilities for people with vision loss

Still read with byour eyes but not well? If "Yes", please reply.

I would like to know how many "eye readers" (as opposed to those who read with their ears via text to speech technology) there are who read Tech Talk. No count is published of the reading habits of low vision visitors, and I suspect that the count is low, that there are more "Other" visitors than the low visioned. gm

Re: Still read with byour eyes but not well? If "Yes", please reply.



Thank you, Chase. Welcome to the club. I need 2x, down from 5x before the cataracts were removed, and my poor contrast sensitivity calls for white (or yellow) copy on a black background. This makes some info invisible; black on black doesn't display, like Morningstar's star ratings for stocks and the random words of Techguy's captcha. Another problem is my need for a narrow column for my narrow visual field. I can bring in the margins, but often the sender fails to provide word wrap. This gets painful in long articles.

I keep wondering if I am alone. What accessibility problems do you encounter? I would like to know what laws protect individual internet users; they seem to put burdens on companies, but fail to say what we are entitled to as independent individuals vs. as employees.

Thoughts and comments? Cheers, George
