A11y settings for viewers with sensitive vision

As we began the rollout of Buildkite at Slack, one of our developers flagged the following issue:

“I know some folks really like the dark mode, but I’m opposite. Due to my sensitive eyes, I can’t see text if contrast is so high like black background and white text. BuildKite’s console log really bothers my eyes and I can’t see things clearly. The background and text colors in Jenkins were reasonably fine to me. If there is a way to change settings, please let me know.”

I proposed downloading the log as a workaround, but this is far from ideal. Please build a setting to toggle for this. Thanks!

Hi @valera! :wave:

Thank you for your suggestion! I will mention your feedback to our creative team :slightly_smiling_face:

Cheers!
