can we please get rid of the "shades of gray" philosophy?
i bought my first color monitor 25 years ago expressly to get away from that.
as i get older and my eyesight is no longer 20-20, i need color contrast to quickly find what i am looking for.
Thanks @KennyG - moved this post to the Community Suggestion area.
@JohnBazaar - Appreciate your comments, unfortunately the color pallette for websites are governed by Siemens Corporate in Germany. We may have some leeway and can look into addressing this however our hands are tied by these rules. Thanks for your feedback and keep the suggestions coming, they provide us with customer suggestions when we have these internal discussions.
When clicking and dragging to HIGHLIGHT the text on a page produces a more readable color contrast than the site colors, something has to be done! Perhaps you could change the color and let corporate policy catch up later? I doubt anyone checks on the color scheme here, because if they did they'd realize how utterly stupid said policy ended up making their own discussion forum!
I have to agree. There are acceptable levels of color contrast that are required so that the users eyes are not being strained by determining which color your eye is to focus on. You will find many sites that either provide stark black and white levels of contrast, which is too much constrast and then those sites that provide too little contrast.
The 10-20% gray that is being used to repeat of the subject line doesn't provide the needed contrast.
i have a 24" high def monitor and the web page zoomed to 125% and i still have trouble with this.
Siemens Corporate needs to get the message. Light gray on white is not a good setting for readability. If this doesn't get fixed, I'll be joining Scott Wertel.
