[resolved] Internet Explorer 8/9 / Accessibility Toolbar (6 posts)

    Hi Joe,

    I think the grey scale switcher does not work on Internet Explorer 8 and 9 too. I tested it on Win XP and 7.

    It only when when compatibility mode is on.

    Could that be?

    Best wishes

    Daniel

    I may end up removing the gray scale switcher. It already doesn't work in Firefox, and if it's unreliable in IE, it's probably not worth keeping. I had gone with Chris's statement of support for it, so I didn't verify in IE.

    But I think that the feature is of dubious value; as a testing and analysis tool, greyscale is very useful, but I'm not sure it has a lot of value for the consumer.

    I think so too. Is there an easy way to disable it in the actual version?

    Easiest thing is to go to line 199 of wp-accessibility.php and edit. Change:

    $is_firefox = (stristr($ua, 'Firefox'));

    to:

    $is_firefox = true;

    You're just short circuiting the check which disables the link in Firefox so that it will always show up as true.

    With version 1.2.1, the contrast feature defaults to disabled. It can still be enabled, but it won't display by default.
