Because I really do enjoy blogging, even though I don’t get to it that often, I keep trying to make my blog accessible to myself and others with visual impairments. One way to do this is make a high contract font/page. I have done this. However, for the life of me, I can’t figure out why WordPress won’t let you change the font size without paying for the Custom Design. That’s so silly, isn’t it? Other users in the support forums have said well just make the font larger using your browser. Well, yes, but I would like to make my blog accessible without having to do anything else. After all, I am visually impaired myself AND I’m in the profession of working with individuals with disabilities. They don’t have any cute black/white themes so I had to go with this one because it was reasonably high contrast and still cute. But look at how small the font is? Frustrating!
