Description ravedave 2006-07-25 03:31:29 UTC
Mediawiki should come with skins installed for helping out users with
disabilities. I am no expert, nor do I have any experience with how to make
websites usable for the disabled, but I would think there should be skins
provided to help: 
Users with Colorblindness
Users with Low/degraded vision

Can you name any specific features you think should be added to these? 
Screenreaders should be able to handle the skins as well as could be expected
as-is, as far as I know.  Color is never used as a cue for anything.  And users
with low vision should increase font size in their browser settings.

Seems to be fine as is. Closing.
