Google Introduces “Invisible” Gmail Messages!

A Google “Project Fi” user contacted me on Google+ this afternoon, expressing his extreme displeasure at a Gmail message (please see image below) that he received a week or so ago from that project. His comment: “I’m sure they’re trying to tell me something, but I can’t really read it.”

Not surprisingly, it’s in the dandy new Google low-contrast font style — oh so pretty and oh so useless to anyone with less than perfect vision.

Perhaps he saw my recent post “How Google Risks Court Actions Under the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act)” — https://lauren.vortex.com/2017/06/26/how-google-risks-court-actions-under-the-ada-americans-with-disabilities-act — in any case he thought that I might be able to help with this overall accessibility issue.

Well, I’m willing to keep writing and talking about this until I’m Google blue, green, yellow, and red in the face — but so far, I’m not having much luck.

I’ll keep on tryin’ though!
