Default REAPER for low vision people

In the french forum of AUDIOFANZINE a reaper user ask for a theme (and an entire config) for a friend who has some low vision.

The theme need to have as many contrast as possible (full white on black) and minimum color for eye fatigue

here's a WIP version (I made the theme and he made the icon)

need some more work but it's very promiting

Based on REALAX by Seventh (Thanks to Him)

Nice work.

I suppose you'll want to make some rather large layouts. Perhaps some of the artists among us will want to help out.

The height is not so important for him because he's using a zoom software, so he is used to normal height softs. But it could be useful for additional layouts. If some Reaper artist want to give it some bonus it would be cool

Good job.

I'd like to see this top-toolbar in my Reaper. Is there a config for me/us?

You can make that toolbar by using Text, and check the double size box, even make the letters bigger and capitalized to suit your needs.
Right click on a space inside any toolbar, then right click on any context, even separators. Very useful as toolkbar icons are too small sometimes.

Default Can I have a copy?

I was googling around and found this forum posting about a low vision theme. I don't need the high contrast stuff but I really need help making Reaper bigger so I can see what I'm doing. I was looking for a link to this theme but couldn't find it. Would you be so kind as to upload it. If you could make the colors use the default windows colors that would be much appreciated but not necessary. I can adjust that on my own if needed. Thank you so much for making a theme that is easy to see for low vision users.

hmmm saw this again...

kinda kewl theme... one extra idea

even with double wide text icons, I imagine they could still be hard to see...

so one 'could' make a set of png files for toolbar icons that were made in [say] Photoshop that would be much bigger... you can simple double or triple the standard icon size and it will work...
