Gray printing!
 
Lately I have noticed in mags and on line the use of gray in the printed matter as opposed to black....I know my eyes are getting weaker and reading gray print is difficult.....or is it just me?

I think all of our eyes are getting weaker, and publications should realize that. What bothers me most is when they print red on black. Or sometimes even purple on black! And of course it's always small print. (And don't get me started on the muttering on TV. Speak up, people!)

I have a problem reading white print on any color.

Here! Here! Also loud background music that drowns out the dialogue.

I thrive in my reading chair when I have a "daylight" bulb in the lamp. Pricey but worth every penny to me. Just like the 'daylight' I have at every workstation in mt sewing room. Might be worth a try.

...and lately on tv many drama type series are having dialog in foreign languages with it being printed at bottom of screen...white letters...great to try to decipher with lite background, like mans shirt! Or better yet the text on someone's cell phone or computer screen.....sorry folks I don't have a theatre size screen on my tv......

he, he. i was having trouble reading white subtitles on light bkground the other day and my son went into Menu and enlarged the picture on the screen. it actually helped a bit. i still prefer them on black and wish they would put them at the top of the screen rather than cover the action. Same with news banners on the bottom. put on the top please!

Black on white paper, is easier for me to read. Sometimes I wish there were not so many choices.

I love Jenny Doan's tutorials BUT she also has the subtitles on the bottom of the screen, which gets in the way of hr demo.
