Hi - i am currently developing web-based forms in Oracle 9i and have given the option to resize text and background colours at runtime for low-vision users.

Can anyone confirm for me any legal issues which may arise if i do NOT offer an option to also resize the button text and the Oracle toolbar icons as these are images at the moment and will involve alot of extra coding to do this !!

Will this breach the UK Disability Discrimination Act ???

Can someone shed some light ??
