People with visual disabilities need to be able to better identify each object in the Windows 10 interface
People who see badly have basically two problems: seeing objects on the screen poorly and distinguishing colors badly. Windows 10 only cares about the second aspect by facilitating the enhancement of contrast, but it does not make it easier for users to see interface elements well. All visible objects in Windows 10 are too "flat" and there are almost no visual differences when they are selected or receive focus. The interface elements have no volume and this forces people with visual disabilities to make a great visual effort to distinguish them.
Users who see little should be able to easily identify interface objects. For example, they should be able to easily differentiate the active window thanks to the color of the caption, the edge of the window, etc. The same goes for the other interface controls (icons, buttons, lists, etc.).
New tools to increase contrast (high contrast themes, filters, etc.) do not help with this problem. Daily I support people who have a lot of problems with this in Windows 10 and I can do almost nothing for them.
When will Windows have the historic "Window properties" control panel again? There are third-party tools that access the registry to do so but do not work properly as they finally corrupt the user profile ...
Hi Daniel, a new feature that we recently added was the ability to select a light, dark, or custom theme in Windows. If you go to Settings (Windows Logo Key + I) then select Personalization > Colors, you can select a Light, Dark, or Custom theme. If you need additional assistance you can contact the Disability Answer Desk at aka.ms/DAD where you can call or chat with a live agent.
