Ensure your text can be manipulated in the way that the individual user
wants - and you can add things that make this easier like style sheet
switchers etc.

We're currently working on a switcher that will allow any combination of
colours - currently one of my colleagues uses mid-blue on brown for
maximum visibility which is a little unusual. It's not the technology
that's difficult - it's the User Interface that we are having to tailor
most carefully so that people with visual enhancement needs can
recognise what is best for them - and in the extreme which precise shade
of grey in a sea of grey.
