Font Color in Articles
« on: June 29, 2021, 07:47:08 pm »

With black background being the new standard, has anyone in responsible charge of things noticed that labels (text) for images are essentially unreadable given the text color is medium gray against a black background?  What would have been wrong with the same white used for all text?  Or bright yellow?  Or doesn't it matter?

It matters. I’ve noticed. We upped the contract of the “off white” captions- but they are an unreadable grey. Will address again. I agree.

I reported this back on May 1. No matter now, as I decided to let subscription lapse.

It has been 6 months.  I can't see any change.

I do not see the problem on my desktop.  It is very readable to me.

Brad Here is my screen shot.  I understood your concern to be the text in the body of the article.  Yes the text under the photos is a bit on the dark side.
