    Customising SIMS for staff with Visual issues

    Is there a way of customising the colours on SIMS?

    One of the Admin gals struggles with all the white space as it accentuates her....well, floater. *snigger* (its a real thing, i think its bits of debris casting shadows on your retina) She asked me if there was a way of changing it.

    Is there any sort of accessibility function on there?

    SIMS "white space" obeys Windows' Display Properties. So messing with the background window colour / shade would be where I'd start. Try an off-white and go from there. Does it also affect her use of Word etc?

    Floaters tend to be more noticeable when you're flicking your head around as they "settle" if your head's in position.

    ....unless she's got the sort that really don't flush.

    Hi, If you look in sims.net under tools>set ups> user options you can change the colour of sims.

    Good grief - you mean that not everyone has them?? I just assumed that was what everyone saw. I usually only find them an annoyance when I'm trying to get to sleep at night - or when I start thinking about them..... like now for instance.... darn!
