Well I had an accident of sorts and well to spell it out I had some chemical/s exposure to my
. bright lights and reading is very hard, luckily I know where all the keys are so I can type pretty well without looking.
I don't know whats going to happen to my eyes but if they don't get worse and at least stay the same I need to find a way to keep using my laptop. the following is a list of problems that I need to solve. I am a Tech and graphic artist so using a computer is my living and my only skills. Just never had to set up a PC for visually impaired person.
1. screen is to bright, even at the laptops lowest setting. I have tried a few dark themes and love the one from Mr. Grim (hope I said his name right) but ran into some color issues with firefox and some websites using that theme even though it would be good to use. So I need to find a dark theme or a way to change settings to make things darker but easy to read at the same time. I use a dark theme on this site and the colors are OK minus the white areas like this message box the smily area hurts my eyes.
2. I use windows live mail and would like to change the colors so nothing is white but I have not figured it out and can't look at the screen to long to find out how. If someone could find the settings and post how to get at them so my wife can help me change the colors that would be great.
3. Anything else that might help me.
I have to enlarge/zoom this forum about 5 times normal (no side scrolling) to be able to read it and see buttons etc. Well its 5am and I can't sleep cause me eyes are burning and no not from using the laptop, I don't want to wake the wife for my eye drops. Anyway any suggestions etc would be really great and the easier its explained the better as my wife might be the one helping me make the changes so I can use the laptop like I did before. Thanks in advance for any help, hints etc that people can give and pray I don't need them for long. Oh and I have tried google and other searches but most sites have bright backgrounds which makes it hard to read.
