Could NOT agree more with this issue. '
At the right of my view, the Headers are visual , but the links are only clearly distinct at around 12 inches. I am 78 and have been looking at monitors since 1971. Accessibility must be in the hands of an eugenic devote.Frederick C. Monson, PhD commented
The current trend in the use of low-contrast typography is creating accessibility problems for all web readers. C heck out: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa480223.aspx for an example of thin strokes and bolder in the base of the 'U'. If I ever chose a text book for a class in anything I taught with this kind of typography, they would complain that the 'print' was really nasty and hard to read, and that would be at 10". A web page is no place on which to play games with the background and links that one has to use opera glasses to read. Look to the right for the almost invisible numbers of Accessibility (BOLD) that I can see only by leaning over the near edge of my desk to cut the normal 24" to about 16". The web for this user is becomming more and more - irrational.
