    Text is too light


      Can you please make the text darker in PDF documents?  This light gray text on a white background is almost impossible to read.


      Thank you.

          Step 1

          Download and install Adobe Reader on your computer (see Resources), then launch the program.

          Step 2

          Click “Edit” on the menu bar and select “Preferences” from the drop-down menu. Click on the “Accessibility” hyperlink on the left pane of the interface window.

          Step 3

          Click the drop-down arrow next to High-Contrast Color Combinations and choose one of the color combinations. Alternatively, tick the radio button next to Custom Color and choose a color for the Page Background and the Document Text to darken light PDF files.

          Step 4

          Click the "OK" button to view the PDF file. If needed, continue making further changes to the High-Contrast and Custom Color options to make the document easier to read.


          Hope it works.
