Last modified text not readable per WCAG guidelines
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Medium gray text on a light gray background is not readable for a large percentage of the population. According to the WCAG 2.0 contrast ratio formula, our current contrast ratio for this text is 2.47,[1] which doesn't even pass the lowest threshold of compliance for 18pt text (our text is much smaller than that). I would suggest we make the text bigger and darker so that it is more accessible.

Since this is a Beta feature this should probably get incorporated into a story and is not a bug per se but is about fine tuning an existing experimental feature.
