Changing Colour Contrast
Certain colour text and page background combinations can make it difficult for some people to see the text clearly. If you have a screen reader, you might already have a feature which lets you change the colour contrast between the text and page background. However, if you don’t have this feature, there are other ways you can change these:
Click the settings button (cog icon) and then select Internet options. In the general tab area, look for Accessibility under Appearance and choose the colours you want.
If you want to override all font and colour settings for websites, tick these checkboxes: Ignore colors specified on webpages, ignore font styles specified on webpages and ignore font sizes specified on webpages.
You can download a high contrast web extension via the chrome web store
Click the settings button (3 line icon) near the top right of the browser and then select options. In the general panel area, look for the Language and Appearance section and click colours. From there, you can change the colours of the text, page background and some links on certain pages.
