Bible Desktop on Windows will use the user's theme. I think it properly handles High Contrast, but I'm not sure. I haven't tried it in ages.

Within BD, the application font can be chosen and set to any size.

On the Mac, it can also read the text using VoiceOver. The user has to select the text to get it to be read.

The problem is I have no idea what our different front-ends do, and http://crosswire.org/wiki/Choosing_a_SWORD_program doesn't have any section about this...  Are people able to make a brief comment about what the different front-ends can do and I can pass this info on to him?

I've been spurred on by a post by a fairly prominent iOS/OS X developer, available at http://mattgemmell.com/2010/12/19/accessibility-for-iphone-and-ipad-apps/
