New Layout - Accessibility check, please?

Hey everyone, no new content today.  Just wanted to announce the redesign - I got tired of wrangling with a template designed for the old blogger interface and being unable to edit it easily; besides, it was really time for something new - and ask if anyone has any accessibility issues that I need to address.  I'm no expert on web accessibility, but I do want this space to be accessible for all, so please let me know if there's anything that needs to be changed!

Works fine. If this posts I can actually comment!

Well, the captcha thing is kind of hard for people with poor eyesight but that's pretty much a standard internet feature now. I've gotten used to having to request new images a half dozen to a dozen times before I get one where I can read both words/numbers.

Other than that though, I don't see any issues. Course, we've already covered that my vision is pretty shoddy LOL.

Well shit...that's because I forgot to reinstall Disqus after changing the template. Silly me. So it's working off of Blogger's default commenting system, which is shitty and uses really nasty captchas. I will install Disqus tomorrow, which should fix the issue! Thank you for letting me know.

Looks fine to me!

Ahh, that's much better.  Got Disqus, and I'm realizing the line spacing is pretty narrow, so I'm going to muck about with it and see what I can do, though that may only be bothering me, but w'ev.

Seems good to me, yo. I have very little in the way of accessibility issues to deal with myself (at least, not web-accessibility), but I don't see anything that would have stood out to me as a web designer, either.  No hovering needed, no constantly shifting targets to track, reasonably good contrast between background and foreground colours in text.

Although I love the green on the right here in the archive list, LOVE it, it may be a little low-contrast?  If you can, perhaps you could offer a "high-contrast" stylesheet with a button to activate it, that would allow someone to get a more high-contrast (more saturation would help) colour for the month and post names? I can point you to a website or two that explain how to do it if it's not in your skillset, but I believe it is, no?

But I really like it, we have similar taste, it seems. :)

I'm flattered to be in such good company when it comes to design tastes!  :-)

As for a high-contrast version, that's...a little outside my skillset.  I can tweak an established stylesheet without too much trouble (via trial and error and google if nothing else), but I wouldn't know how to create an alternate with a way to switch, so if you had a resource on that I'd love to take a look and see what I can do.
