Release notes 95 - WCAG standard
The release is expected on May 31. Below you will find only the changes related to the WCAG guidelines that will also affect the learner's screens.
We will publish all release notes at a later time this month.
The WCAG standards are defined to make sure all web contents are accessible for all users. In order to meet these standards, we started with changing the contrast of the element-colours to meet the right ratio. All of these changes consist of adjusting the colours from a lighter tint to a somewhat darker tint of that same colour.
