Low contrast in sidebar hinders usability/accessibility



Gray text on black background in the sidebar makes it difficult to quickly navigate and identify the label/link I am looking for.

Designers may love the subtle low contrast look, but it reduces the legibility of your interface.

As my eyes get older I am more and more sensitive to low contrast issues and in an enterprise environment compliance with ADA/Accessibility standards is important as well.

Please increase the contrast, allow for a high contrast option, or allow personal settings similar to #slack.




Thanks for sharing your feedback @Mike_Hoefer; I completely understand where you’re coming from and really hope this is something we can improve in the future!
