Well, that's an interesting aspect and reason to go for the louder fonts, however, not many visually impaired users gonna use the development related websites. Also, most of the site developers might not be aware of the ADA.
You can have all the tools in the world but if you don't genuinely believe in yourself, it's useless.
What ticks me off even worse is the really small gray text that is intended to be seen as secondary info, but that is so freakin small, I have to bring the site's scale up to 120% to read it. CP. Just sayin...

small gray light-grey text on a pale-grey background....This is what really p's me off.

The case was originally brought by a blind man named Guillermo Robles, who sued the pizza chain after he was unable to order food on Domino’s website and mobile app despite using screen-reading software.
So I'm wondering why he didn't call the order in. I don't want to seem unsympathetic to the disabled but this requirement seems a bit much.
Ah, I didn't know it was a simple and common fix. I don't do any web stuff (except for my very simple and non-compliant personal site). I assumed it was a substantial task as it seems all I hear from folks at work and on CP is how difficult everything webbish seems to be. Thanks for the enlightenment.
I haven't particularly noticed that, but I do know there's a bit of a opposite trend in games.
When Final Fantasy XV came out I had to wear my glasses (which I never wear anymore) and I still wasn't able to read everything on my TV.
I went looking for a patch and saw blogs and forums about the small font and apparently I already had a patch which made it bigger!
In the end I put my couch something like a meter in front of the TV.
I had the same problem with God of War.
I read that more and more games use these ridiculously small fonts and more gamers have trouble reading them.
It really takes out some of the fun because you're always squinting your eyes.
A regular font on a computer, which is probably like half a meter away at most, is well readable for you and me.
I never had trouble with CP, for example.
But I can imagine that it's just a little too small for some people.
Making it just a tad bigger might help those people and personally I don't really mind either.
Although it can get annoying to read on phones where the screen can't fit that many characters.
Because actual responsive designs are hard. Much easier to just design for a small phone, and apply a fixed scaling factor on anything larger.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?

ah Rodney Dangerfield: so often proved that old nugget:
"If you can't laugh at yourself you're missing the best joke(s)."
(and really the way he told those sorts of jokes it wasn't hard to put yourself in his place.)
