Surely that a lot of times you have found webs impossible of be read, due to the color combinations used.
For that reason I've programmed a script that can transform any webpage making it more accessible. If you drag and drop this link to the bookmarks or favorite bar of your browser, and you click on it, when you find a web with colors that doesn't allow read it clearly, the web will change their color with the colors of Computable minds and the accesibility will be better in the majority of cases. If you want that the script will be executed always in all the webs, you can install it, having activated the Firefox extension Grease monkey, or using Chrome, and clicking in this link.
