Not only Microsoft’s Windows 10 but its Chromium-based Edge browser also has High Contest Mode. In this blog post, learn how to enable it.

Those web pages aren’t easy for people with normal eye-sight and become impossible for visually impaired people. High contrast color scheme makes it easier for people to read.
To help people with vision disabilities, Microsoft’s not only added a High contrast theme in Windows 10, but they also added the same feature in the Edge Chromium. The mode is not enabled in the browser out of the box and users have to enable it manually using experimental flags.
