Vision problems

I have difficulty seeing the light green writing/background on Windows 10. I also have problems reading and differentiating the dots and dashes over the letters when asked to type something in Hungarian, I have been skipping this part, but now I cant proceed the level unless I do it. What to do?

You should probably ask this question in one of the general Duolingo forums, not in the Hungarian topic.
Nevertheless, in Windows 10, you should be able to customize the display to better fit your vision needs. If you right-click anywhere on a blank area of your desktop background, you can select Personalize.
There, you have options to modify your Themes, and, inside of Themes, adjust your Color filters and High contrast settings. There are various preset color filter settings, including turning everything Grayscale, Inverted, or you can select from three specific colorblindness filters. Hopefully one of those can help you see what you want to see.

Of course, it will not help with the dots and dashes. But there are ways to change the Fonts as well, a different Font may increase the difference between dots and dashes.
What I am not sure of is that a Font setting will take effect in Duolingo. You can try for yourself.

Perhaps you could use a browser add-on like Stylus to change the CSS (i.e. the style) on duolingo.com.

Firefox version of the addon:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/styl-us/

Chrome version:

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/stylus/clngdbkpkpeebahjckkjfobafhncgmne

It should also be available for Edge and most other browsers.

The CSS that you'd need (when you're visiting duolingo.com, click on the icon corresponding to Stylus in the navigation bar, and then on "Write style for: www.duolingo.com") would be something like:

span { font-size: x-large !important; color: black !important; font-family: some_name !important; }

where you need to change "some_name" to a font that's available on your system and has better "distinguishability" (e.g. Arial, Times New Roman). Also, feel free to change/play around with any of the other lines (it should be hopefully mostly self-explanatory even if you've never dealt with CSS before).

Hope that helps a bit!
