Dark Mode as an Accessibility Need

Dark Mode for Canvas comes up periodically but is never addressed. Third-party browser extensions do not always work well (right now I am using one that handles everything on this page just fine- except for the field where I am typing). This really needs to be addressed as an accessibility need, and not just a student preference for late-night study hours. UDL, increasing studies of student vision being impaired by screen time, these are all great reasons to incorporate a proper dark mode in Canvas. How do you handle these concerns from faculty and students with accommodation needs? I am personally light sensitive and rotate through about five different dark modes, just to do my daily work- spending the majority of my work hours in Canvas I am very sympathetic to student concerns about this.
