This was reported by one of our visually impaired users on OTRS.
I am a technically blind person with just ufficient sight to be able to read my ipad. I make extensive use of Wikipedia and happily make a small monthly conribution to your organisation. I am able to read more easily with the Wikipedia app set to a black background and white print. However, the links within articles (hyperlinks, I think they are called) remain in a sort of royal blue and are not contrasty enough to be legible for those of us who are visually impaired.
Is there any possibility that the link colouring could be made customisable or even to change the colour to a more contrasty one?
I look forward to your keeping up your excellent work.
1. Update link color on black mode to #3E71D6
In order to achieve WCAG AA compliance against both the primary text color (#FFF) and the background (#000) we need to update the current blue link color on black mode to #3E71D6. Unfortunately, this new color is not WCAG AA compatible with the dark mode background color (#2E3136) so we will keep the current blue link color on dark mode (#69F) and dark mode like sepia mode will not be WCAG compliant across text and background colors. The purpose of the two non WCAG compliant modes (dark and sepia) will continue to be to provide a low contrast theme for users who have blue light sensitivity.
2. Underline links when iOS high contrast setting is detected
If a user has the iOS high contrast setting set on their device, we would like to be able to add an underline to links in the article view.
