I think it’s vision dependent, but a couple ways to “see” the issue. One would be to turn on grayscale to reduce color cues.
Still readable, but much less contrast than blue names.
The other way is just to trust the standards. I personally see this yellow just fine, but if accessibility standards say that the contrast is majorly suboptimal (the ratio is 1.88:1 currently) then I believe something should be done.
Ha! I didn’t even realize this existed. I’m actually putting together a few mock-ups, which we can share. I think the solution is to use a darker yellow on light backgrounds, but keep dark backgrounds the same. (I know that sounds weird, but it’s currently what we do for the blue text as well)
Before we take this chat to the community (and should we really just be including site supporters? They aren’t the only ones looking after all!) I think I’d like to ask @anoek if those changes are even worth pursuing
