Color Contrast - default link blue

Jump to solution

Hello all - 

I'd like to know if/when the default blue color for links in Canvas will be addressed? As it stands now, the contrast is only at 2.48:1. 

Obviously the work around (changing the text color) is simple, but it's time consuming and it's possible not everyone realizes it fails contrast standards. 

Does anyone know the answer to this, and if it's not on the radar, how can I get it there?

Thanks!

 @keefern ‌, have you reported this to Canvas Support? If you have, would you please provide the case number here—and if you have not, would you please initiate a ticket (How do I get help with Canvas as an instructor?‌)

Sure - I'll be glad to submit it. I hadn't because Canvas is working as designed (so it's not "misbehaving"), and I didn't think of it as a "feature" idea. However, I'll put it in there as it seems to be the best fit.

Thanks.

Before submitting it as a feature idea,  @keefern ‌, it would be best to first have that confirmation from Canvas Support that it is indeed working as designed. So if you haven't yet initiated the ticket per the guidance in How do I get help with Canvas as an instructor? , please do that now.

Hello,

I went to the link you identified as being open for voting. Can you explain to me how to vote once I reach that discussion? More important, why is meeting WCAG guidelines an option for voting rather than something Canvas would definitely want to do? I am helping out with accessibility at my school and am trying to learn as much as I can.
