Thank you for this talk Josephine. Macular degeneration runs in my family and I've often wondered how to help them navigate the web for socializing, shopping, and entertainment. There are some solutions, but not enough.

Also, great point on contrast. On my personal backgrounds, I like to use #2a2a2a which translate to R42 G42 B42. I call this hitchhiker gray in honor of "Hitchhikers's Guide to the Galaxy" and it's answer to the meaning of life, the universe and everything being (confusingly) 42. Anyway, I pair this with fonts in pastels. It's just a mnemonic that's worked for me. Fun and helpful topics! -- Updated to remove trivia biases!

That sounds like a good color combo! Things like ensuring content is zoomable to 200% is also important if you are looking to help people with visual impairments :)

Good point. I'll keep the zoom-ability factor in mind! My elderly aunt loves her books on tape, but if she could read again (somehow) or even play games, that would be amazing. Thank you!
