High Contrast Options for Visually Impaired Work Poorly

Submitted by irv4oh on June 11, 2008 to Aesthetics, Legacy, Usability

I would prefer dark backgrounds and contrasting text & lines, for better readability and power savings. Often, high contrast is more than just a preference for those who are visually impaired. However, High Contrast is the same since at least Windows 95 and does not work well with modern applications.

High contrast should automatically readjust color schemes so that there are never white backgrounds and so that text, line art, and widgets have automatically determined contrasting colors for better usability.
