High Contrast

Description from extension meta Change or invert the color scheme to make webpages easier to read.
Image from store High Contrast
Description from store High Contrast lets you browse the web with your choice of several high-contrast color filters designed to make it easier to read text. When you install this extension, all pages are "inverted", so black becomes white and white becomes black. Press the "browser action" icon in the toolbar to toggle it on and off, or customize your settings on a per-site basis. Use a convenient keyboard shortcut to quickly change your settings while you browse. Other extensions try to change the default colors, but this ends up breaking many popular websites. Only this extension applies filters to your page that invert almost everything - the only exception is photos, which are left alone. Also note that the Chrome web store and other built-in pages like the New Tab page and Settings pages are unaffected - extensions like this one are not allowed to modify them, by design.

Quit wasting EVERYONE else's time and insulting our intelligence with your needless and oft'times senseless prattle!!! The phrase "GET A LIFE" comes to mind...if you are truly having THIS much time on your hands, go volunteer at your local pet shelter, library....anywhere that can use you amazing ability to "hold forth"...

THANK YOU. (2019-11-04) Matthew Pava: I really do like this extension, and I use it most of the time. Unfortunately, unlike its claim that it does not invert pictures, it does. It also inverts the colors on videos. It really messes me up because I really like having the white text on a black background and not have to turn of the extension to see pictures. I also wish there was a smarter way of handling websites that are already dark gray on light gray. They're not high contrast either.

However, if you often use Google's office suite (Google Docs, Google Slides, etc.) images don't appear while the High Contrast function is on. Changing the color scheme doesn't help, but "DIsable (Shift+F11)" the High Contrast from the extension popup solves this problem. To disable the function manually click the extension in the top right of Chrome and select "Disable". Other than that, this extension works very well. (2019-10-30) Evie H: It wasn't as fun as when you do it on a Chromebook. (2019-10-24) Sherrie McNulty: It said compatible with my computer, but it doesn't work. I tried SHIFT+F10, SHIFT+F11, and SHIFT +F12. I'm removing the extension. OS: Windows 10 Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-6200U CPU @ 2.30GHz 2.4GHz System type: 64-bit Operating system, x64-based processor Display adapter: Intel(R) HD Graphics 520 (2019-10-16) Chris Summers: Works great when no pictures are involved. Instead of ignoring pictures it just washes them out to the point that it is impossible to see them. (2019-10-09) Ashley Salas: En las páginas tales como Google Docs online no me permitía ver las fotos que ingresaba a un documento, por lo tanto no podía imprimirlas y pensé que era problema de mi impresora o alguna configuración que le hice a la computadora. Tuve que restaurarla y perder mucho tiempo, por favor arreglen esto, tiene potencial pero veo que no soy la única que tuvo el problema. (2019-10-08) Gabriel Teixeira: la falta de brillo me molesta para ver el monitor (2019-10-02) TOFX: Any1 know how is this compared to Lunar Reader extension ? or did lunar reader modify this towards the community by joining both dark reader and high contrast extensions into 1 perfect extension (2019-10-02) Tharles - Folks: Caracas velho, muito bom me ajudou muito, mesmo configurando o PC e o Google ainda sim ficava meio ruim para enxergar, com esta extensão posso estudar e ler antigos de bom sem forçar as vistas para mim esta ótimo, só um detalhe uma critica construtiva, poderiam adicionar uma função modo leitura deixando assim a tela amarela estilo livro antigo com um regulador de coloração aplicando no mesmo um pouco de contraste nas letras. Utilizo muito o notebook e com essa função ajudaria muito, crio que ajudaria muto para os que utiliza tablets .. (2019-10-02) R.D. SMITH: this does not work... goes in and out...mostly out (2019-10-01) Joann Gogolin: for someone with cataracts this is a life saver :) (2019-09-27) Will Phelps: (+) Features like this make it possible for people with certain less-recognized vision disabilities (e.g. ocular myasthenia gravis) to go on using computers. Thank you! (-) Description claims otherwise, but it DOES modify color of photos such that they cannot be viewed in any useful way. As a programmer myself, it seems goofy that Google can't filter image content. (-) Chrome does now have a "dark mode" option which is an ideal solution for web sites that support it -- much better than just inverting whatever colors the site is designed to use. BUT this feature only seems to support web pages internal to the Chrome browser. Why not at least support all Google pages, such as those from Google Search? (2019-09-24) Michel Basilieres: Not working for me any more, has zero effect. (2019-09-22) Şahin Aslan: süper diyelim gitsin (2019-09-21) Sergio Hernández: Debería de funcionar en todas la páginas... Pero no lo hace. (2019-09-20) Tariq Atiek: Thank you for this, I have some visual disability, and sadly Windows Accesbility is not good compared to the MacOS. But with this extension it doesnt matter, I can just use chrome (2019-09-16) Jhonathan Candeu: gostei, é util, porem ele nao deixa escuro somente as paginas, as fotos e imagens invertem de cores tambem, o que fica bem desagradavel (2019-09-14) CS: terbaik (2019-09-13) Walter Manson: It does not work (2019-09-05) Alex Ian: Works as described, no issues. Good selection of presets. For GoogleDocs and anything with color options it overrides those settings. If you want dark GoogleDocs, this is your tool unless you rely on text color cues. For an author who likes to write in the dark, it's great. Though it makes the black Netflix screens a screaming white. lol. it works as described.
