CensoredBiscuitI'm looking to work on the wiki page you told me too but I have no idea what accessibility programs come with ubuntu.00:05
PendulumCensoredBiscuit: a good start is to look in the assitive technology section of the software center00:06

JanCit runs when you enable "Assisterende technologie├źn"00:22

Cheri703are there any accessibility whatnots that let you adjust the contrast of things?06:29
Cheri703my netbook doesn't have a contrast option for the display, and I was just thinking that might be something useful06:29
Cheri703I am discovering that I get SIGNIFICANTLY less eye strain/pain at 20%-30% grey background with black text vs white and black, and that's even at very low brightness06:30
Cheri703LOTS happier eyes06:31
Cheri703I did find how to do it in firefox...06:37
AlanBellCheri703: there are a bunch of things in the compiz filters relating to contrast07:07
AlanBelland really really cool options to simulate colour blindness07:07
Cheri703hmm...ok07:08
Cheri703I don't use compiz :/07:08
Cheri703I turn off desktop effects07:08
AlanBellnew unity depends on compiz07:09
Cheri703:( I haven't tried new unity, but hated old unity, so...07:09
Cheri703:/07:09
AlanBellI am using old unity07:10
AlanBellI am not a huge fan07:10
AlanBellI will probably use new unity07:10
Cheri703I'll try it, but...07:10
Cheri703if I don't like it I'll try something else07:11
JanCthere are low-contrast themes for Gtk/GNOME, but they aren't as pretty as the default theme...07:21
JanCCheri703: you can always disable all the "special" effects in Compiz07:22
Cheri703might try it07:25
Cheri703I guess I don't know that a filter is what I'd want. because I'd want other stuff to still look ok07:26
Cheri703just don't want WHITE WHITE07:26
AlanBellCheri703: trick for you :)08:07
Cheri703?08:07
AlanBellcreate a bookmark and put this in it: javascript:void(document.body.style.background='#dddddd')08:08
Cheri703what will it do?08:08
AlanBellor just paste that in the URL bar on a website where you want to soften the background08:08
AlanBellit will change the background colour of the page08:08
Cheri703ah, I already set it :)08:09
AlanBellfrom white (#FFFFFF) to a light grey08:09
Cheri703thanks though :)08:09
Cheri703you can go into the settings and change the color, even force sites to use it :)08:09
AlanBellyou can have that as a bookmarklet08:09
Cheri703yeah, I definitely will save it08:09
Cheri703I have xmarks, so if I'm on another computer I can still access it08:09
AlanBellI had one for javascript:void(document.body.style.fontFamily='ubuntu') to force the Ubuntu font when I was testing that on different sites08:10
Cheri703ha, nice08:10
AlanBelljust occurred to me that it could be done for other styles of the page08:10
Cheri703:)08:11
Cheri703found out I can change background colors in adobe reader (try to avoid it, but it's worth it for this). it will enable me to actually read ebooks and pdfs :)08:12
