Hi all,

I just ran across the article, The Inverting Feature On iOS & Android
Doesn’t Meet The Needs Of Low Vision Users by Jeffrey Stark.
"...Going as far as having invert functions is not going far enough.
Microsoft, Linux, Mozilla and even CyanogenMod seem to understand the
needs of the low vision community by all providing mechanisms for
people to choose their own colors and set their device in high
contrast colors. While Apple, Google, Blackberry and others seem to be
trying to build a bicycle for a sea horse."

The full article is at:

Would it make a good use case?

Kindest Regards,
Laura
