Very readable.  Are you OK with losing the wood chip look?  I'd hate to lose that if I was the only one having trouble reading it.

The top banner is readable as is... and as we discussed, the buttons highlight as you pass over them anyway.

Without the chips seems boring but I can live with it.  I have ask the mods for input to see if we should or should not put them back for looks. 

But if others were having troubles seeing the text in the chips I need to know.

I'm a pilot... I have to get that checked every two years (not sure why... color blindness is not supposed to change over time).

I have a very mild red/green color blindness.  Basically, I always pass the test, but there is some hesitation while I'm looking at the color plates.  I had no idea I even had the condition until I was tested for my pilot's license... I never have trouble distinguishing traffic lights or colors of markers or paper.

Red/Green color blindness is very common in men, and lots of men have it without ever knowing it.  If my problem viewing it was related to R/G colorblindness, then I would expect a number of your members would have had the same problem.

I have no deficiency at all in the blue spectrum (which is a much rarer form of color blindness).

I just remember taking that test in the military and thought I wonder if.  ;) 

The chips with different colored lettering reminding me of some of the test when I was goofing around.
