Need to improve the visual ease of access functions in Quicken 2018 (5 Legacy Votes)
In Quicken Premier 2018 for Win 7 Pro, the colors used for the entire software display screens are very difficult to see for people like me who have limited visual acuity, especially regarding the very bright white backgrounds of the application screens with **very** light and dim font colors.
I have a very hard time even seeing any of the characters used for the labels, info, function titles, menus, messages, etc. due to the very light font colors on a bright white background. For people with problems like mine, the lettering and other characters etc. are just a very dim blur on the glaring bright white background due to the extremely low contrast between the foreground and background displays..
Most software nowadays corrects this problem with an ease of access utility that allows users to adjust screen and font foreground, background colors, and style, color and size of fonts, menus, etc. so that the software is comfortable to use, even often providing an ability to display the entire application in a high contrast reverse-color mode..
This lack of visual clarity would not be as severe a problem, for example, if the software screens even simply adjusted the display to accommodate the users who switch to a high-contrast display mode in Windows, but no such functionality is provided; the only recognition by Quicken of the user display mode is with the software borders and window menus, the main display does not adjust.
I would hope that someone at Quicken would recognize this problem and give us folks with vision problems some help. I have another financial program, [removed] (acquired mainly because of this Quicken problem), which has an excellent set of functions allowing users to adjust all the displays for registers, reports, menus, options, etc. to the full range of Windows colors desired by the user; if for example I prefer a black screen background with white or yellow lettering on a dark grey register background, it is very simple to do. Such accessibility would be a great improvement for Quicken.
