Re: Contrast Testing in MS Word

Hi Jim,

One that has been on my list to try out is DAT:

It has a built in checker. I use the fast insider for Word, so I wasn't
sure it would work with that setting.

For colour blind checking, I screen print it and put it through a colour
blind checker. Not 100% proof as the jpg could distort a tiny bit, but it
gets the job done okay. Better if they worked with .tiffs.
