Internet Explorer 9 released with accessibility bug


Internet Explorer 9, Microsoft’s newest version of its web browser, was released with an accessibility bug that may prevent people with a vision impairment from using it effectively.

The bug affects the browser’s ‘ignore colors of the website’ feature, which is designed to remove the background and font colour of a website and allow the user to replace it with a preferred colour scheme. The feature is not implemented in the same way as previous versions of Internet Explorer or other browsers such as Firefox, instead resulting in possible inaccessible colour contrast ratios and brightness differences.
