I'm going to look for a case with a light built in, I think that's maybe the best way around the contrast issue, rather than having to keep changing etc (I think part of the problem is she was apprehensive about using something other than a book, and the default font is quite bookish, so she's reluctant to change, if that makes any sense)[...]
You're welcome!

Ah yes the bookish font... I understand the reluctance to change. Though I do recommend trying some others; most of them are quite bookish and there might be one that's easier to read (for contrast) that she even prefers (I had the same experience).

I haven't seen any cases with the light actually built in... I have an M-Edge, which has a slot where you slide in a special light (E-luminator). The light has three different intensities, and has a bendy arm attached to a sort of flat paper-clip like flat plastic base that slides into the case slot. Very neat!
