In light of a discussion on this topic a while ago, below is an example
of someone who uses their own style sheet to view web pages.

 

With regards,

Subject: [WebAIM] Low Vision Style Sheets

Hi List,
Last week someone asked me to post my
style sheets to the list.  I attached
them but [WebAIM] wisely doesn't allow
attachments.  The following directory
contains the files.  Your are free to
download them.


http://www.csulb.edu/~wed/CSS/

The directory contains two files:
userContent.css -the style sheet and,
ReadMe.html - directions

Note that this is my style sheet for
my own reading.  It has some problems.
 I am a computer scientist and they
don't bother me.  A normal end user
might be confused.

The typography is the interesting
part.  I just got tired of the
typography sighted people thought I
would like.

To see a description of the typography
transformations see
http://www.csulb.edu/~wed/ITAcc/ITAcc.html

Just look at the example section.

For most people with low vision
reading improperly styled print is
painful or nauseating or both.  We
also get lost tracking the lines and
seeing all the letters.  This style
sheet is my "non-puking" sheet.  It
works for me but may drive another
partially sighted person crazy.
Reading on the margin of sight is that
delicate.

Wayne
