The different colors help me find my various posts so i can find any responses to any of my specific posts.
The bold helps me proof read what i wrote. Typing in not my forte.
I wish everyone wrote in bold but i don't impose my needs onto others.
And YES i do know about the A in the right hand corner.
One of the Monitors was kind enough to help me with it.
I too have very bad eyes that can not be helped with glasses or other normal means. Now saying that let me help you out here.
Not shore what browser you are running but I use firefox and one thing I love about it is you can change the size of the text on any website on the fly with it. I also think IE also now supports page zooming.
If that is not enough for you and you need help seeing every thing on the computer there is software known as screen magnifiers that you can run. Here is a link to a well known one called zoomtext http://www.aisquared.com/zoomtext/
If you can't afford that there are some open source ones out there just Google for screen magnifier software.
Now for the ultimate in set up for some one who can't see. My wife is totally blind. on this computer I'm on right now since we share the system is software called JAWS it is a full blown screen reader it takes what ever is on the screen and reads it out loud to you. Kind of cool not to have to read email just let the system read it to you. Info can be found here http://www.freedomscientific.com/products/fs/jaws-product-page.asp
I know it ain't cheap. that software cost something like $900 but there is a free open source project being worked on called NVDA but it isn't quit up to snuff yet with the pay software.
Please note I'm not trying to be mean or start problems just helpfull hints from one visually impaired person to another. If you like further info on software or tricks to make the computer easier for you to see just send me a privet message.
