For me, the text colors and text colors and shading make it very difficult for me to read the site. The only way I can describe what I see is that it looks as if all of the colors have been heavily bleached. I have used three different browser with the same results. All the text is almost completely washed out. The shaded items are in pastels and for me it is very difficult to read. There is almost no contrast between the foreground colors and the background.
Can anything be done to help make the site more accessible for color blind / challenged users?
