Yes, that's worth considering, but it may not solve the problem. For one thing the monitor brightness is at a good setting for everything else I do. Also, the problem with Office 2013 apps is not just the "whiteness" but low contrast. The "dark grey" theme adds barely enough contrast to make it tolerable - dimming the monitor may make it worse. Fortunately I don't need to use it much so I may be able to get by. But if necessary I'll remove it and go back to Office 2003. It's pretty sad that 10 year old software actually has better functionality.
