Enable font colors in high contrast mode
I cannot upgrade beyond Office 2007 because the later versions do not support font colors when Windows is in high contrast mode, which I use to protect my eyes. In these versions I cannot change font colors--it is fixed in the default color. See others raving about it: http://www.msofficeforums.com/word/21758-cannot-see-font-color-word-2013-a.html

This is really an inclusion feature that is missing in Office. Please solve fix and make the life of the less fortunate people with certain visual impairings.

I also consider it very important, particularly for PowerPoint, to see the "real" colors in the PowerPoint presentation that I'm constructing, while at the same have the Windows high-contrast mode controlling auxiliary windows. Is it not possible to provide a simple toggle that makes the PowerPoint design template override the Windows HighContrast colors?
Please please please fix this issue. I cannot see the gray fonts and boxes. I have 20/20 vision with my glasses but the eye strain of trying to see the gray and focus on the gray is literally hurting my eyes. It is effecting my work. I don't want to be crude in my comments but it is almost like you don't care that people over 40 can use your products. And now, this light gray font is invading websites. Microsoft, I adore you and live and work online. Please fix this issue.

Font color is absolutely crucial for my work. So please bring back the font colors as in Office 2007 so I can upgrade!!! Don't make me choose between font color and the new features of Office.
