I love FFXIV and have been playing it since day one.
I have Best disease (Best's vitelliform macular dystrophy) Best causes problems with my central vision. I was starting to have trouble with seeing buffs, debuffs, casting bars, and ground markers.
I recently hit the fifth and final stage of Best with the addition to color blindness. I was starting to feel that the game I love so much was getting impossible for me to enjoy. I tried lots of things like making my UI elements very large, turning up the sound effects, memorizing fights so I could anticipate better, anything that would help me keep doing the thing I love the most.
Then I stumbled upon a youtube video of the Over Lay Lines app (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U6HkqRFDQOs). It is an FFXIV app that enables you to have visual and audio cues that you can customize to your own needs. In my case huge letters and loud sounds :)
the website is http://overleylines.com
I just want to put it out there maybe there are more people who are in a comparable situation as me. This is a life saver for me.
Don't let anything stop you with doing the things you love, there is always a way!
