What is the purpose of the Hi-Contrast theme?

I ask for documentation purposes - the Audacity Manual.

It's in response to this forum post:


Some users with poor eyesight benefit from a high contrast that is 'eye-popping' for most people.  Subtle shades don't work for them, and they can't easily read black on white.  The idea is this new theme would be used with a system theme that is high contrast.  It's intended to work well with Windows 10 Hi contrast Theme 2.

Thanks James, I've added this rational to the draft page I am working on for Themes in the Manual:  http://alphamanual.audacityteam.org/man/Themes
