The Aria AI addition is great. I use it more often than BingChat (and depend upon Opera as my browser, instead of Edge).
The problem being, the use of Aria is sub-optimal.
Part of this is stylistic. Whoever thought that Grey font on a white or light background was good, was thinking stylistically, not in terms of utilization. It might “look cool”, or be a style standard, but it’s not optimal for everyone. Some of us have a hard time with the low contrast provided by a shade of grey on a light background. The font color is “too”. Too little contrast. [Honestly, I am Guessing at the font color. I really can’t see it well enough, I’m just assuming that it’s a dark grey.]
Also, in spite of what any designer thinks, not everybody can see as well as they can. The font size in Aria doesn’t appear to be adjustable, and, for me at least, the size is “too”. Too small.
The standard “increase size” Control “+” doesn’t work. The only option I can see is, for users to Copy everything, leave the Opera browser, and paste it into another app. That’s not very user-friendly. And, I don’t think that all of the additional details transfer… do the numbers presented copy/paste into a text document? [ Sorry… just tried it. Yes, they do. I am thinking of another web-based AI response thing… they present the results with markup, but the markup isn’t copied, and when pasted, linefeeds and bullets/numbering disappear. ]
For usability in general - not the ADA / 508 Compliance, - just general “make this more flexible, more usable, more user-friendly”, the font size and style needs to be adjustable.
And, just in case Aria ever includes graphics, please include an option to include/exclude graphics with zooming the text. It won’t help everybody, but most of us - if we want to zoom the text, we don’t need embedded pictures blowing up and destroying our ability to see content / navigate through an answer.
And, please consider this for any web displayed materials associated with Opera and it’s products. Look at the “additional information” links in Aria. It’s in the History/Menu thing. Over there at the top-left. That’s right … now, look down to the bottom. Keep going. It’s below Feedback and FAQ. Can you read that? That’s worse that the regular Aria font, and it might even be larger! What about the regular Opera website? All of those "less important" blots of text.. they're grey, they're tiny, they're hard to read... If you need something to be off-set visually, please consider minor size change, or something that will still give good contrast - distinct, bold colors, or maybe italics, or high contrast against a SLIGHT background color, or a dark-enough background, but larger, high contrast font color… Anything, just so we can actually see what is on screen.
If this isn’t something that can be worked easily, then if there is a separate style sheet for Aria (or other side-bar items), let us know how we can get to it/adjust it.
Lastly… Can the ability to chain inputs be added, or can the input buffer be increased? I had a non-complex thing I wanted Aria to review and provide input on, and I had to try chopping it into three (plus) sections and inputting each one as a continuation of the last. Aria didn’t understand that, and wound up providing an incomplete answer based on the first section.
