      - On a windows machine, go to the control panel and open the "accessibility options" control panel.
      - Go to the "Display" tabbed pane
      - Check the option "Use High Contrast" in the control panel
      - Press the "Apply" button
      - The applications on the desktop will appear in black and white (no colors)
      - Start a java application
      - The Java application appears in standard low-contrast mode

      This make java/metal applications virtually unusable by persons with visual impairments. It is not easy for users to change the look and feel, so the metal look and feel should shift to its own high-contrast mode (e.g., a theme) when the user has selected the high contrast setting on the desktop.
