Having just installed Elements 8, I was little short of horrified to see the following error message when I started it:
This steinberg product does not support “basic and high contrast themes” on Windows operating systems. Please use one of the “aero” themes that you can set in the windows control panel.
So, in one foul swoop Steinberg simply dismiss their visually impaired customers. Thanks guys.
I can imagine the board meeting where this ridiculous, unbelievably offensive decision was made, “Well, it would be a lot easier and cheaper if we dropped support for these high contrast and simple themes…” “But what about people who have sight problems and need to use these themes?” “Ah screw them, they’re only a minority and who gives a flying fart about disabled people anyway.”
And please, don’t start telling me that there were technical issues and that there was NO way around the problem, because I use a LOT of different commercial software products and this is the ONLY time I have ever encountered such nonsense.
I suppose I’ll just have to see if I can get a refund from the seller, but now that it’s been opened and registered, I doubt I’ll have much joy.
Great job Steinberg, you’ve really made my day, thanks again.
