How can we make FCC documents more reader-friendly?

Stop using colored text.

Websites fail when visitors cannot read it and easily navigate it. .

I am a senior who is losing my vision - which is different than "color-blind". Crayon colors, neon colors, faded colors, and colored backgrounds make it nearly impossible for many of us to SEE and READ the text.

Black on white is the defacto color combination for readers; please use it. And please don't forget to use a gutter (border) on the sides of each side, too.

Aside: When I created websites I asked handicapped visitors to rate: readability, usability and colors. What I learned is browsers do not parse characters or colors equally, and monitors are different too. I cannot stress enough that the boring black on white are the best colors for readers -- if you intend to provide information.
