Computer Troubles

OK!
Now before I get started let's see if we can't get this MUCH more friendly to the vision impaired.
So to whomever is in charge of all this, here are
1. NO COLOR LINKS People with vision problems need to have the highest possible contrast. That means BLACK ON WHITE ONLY!!!!!
2. Font size and selection. I have found AREAL BLACK above 16 to be the best. I can't read what I am typing AT ALL right now!

If everybody that makes web pages could please go to Internet Explorer, "Tools", "Accessability" and check the three boxes in the upper section of that page (ignore colors, ignoe font style, ignore font size) and THEN try your web page...
Well all f us blind guys and gals would truly appreciate it.

Oh yeah, a way to spell check wouldn't hurt either!

Eric,
I too have problem swith the default font size shape normally used in these forums. I can,t see small spaces and the letters blur. Georgs was helpful enough to show me there is a way to enlarge the text somewhat. Upper right hand side Just above the line ' FAQ Membes, Logout there is a white on light blue ( lousy contrast! ) letter A and two arrows. Click on that and the text enlarges a bit. Even at max enlargement it is only equivalent to a 14 size font.

Try holding the "Ctrl" KEY and hitting the "+" KEY a few times anytime you have trouble reading text.
Cheers, Jon
