I've seen some people voice concern about GNOME'S new theme, where now there is no explicit On/Off text for switches anymore but instead only colour is used to indicate state.
People are rightfully concerned that this might impact GNOME's accessibility.

Once you enable 'High Contrast' in 'Universal Access', you get icons for indicating state instead of colour, so don't worry.

Accessibility features ought to be standard features of the desktop. Like curb cuts—slopes on sidewalks designed for wheelchair traversal—many “accessibility” features improve the experience for everyone, regardless of any specific ability or impairment. buff.ly/2V4Gdk1

Accessibility isn't just for "disabled" people.

Accessibility benefits EVERYONE, from the people who are severely impacted to those who find the extra options convenient, and everyone in between.

THERE IS NO DOWNSIDE to making your stuff more accessible.
