The new update blue is not very autism friendly



  • lifewatery

    A non-autistic user over here, just gonna also add green, as this new green is hard to see in dark mode.

    The old colors were much softer and nicer.

    I couldn't have said it better. Gonna be honest, I don't like change in the first place, but I don't think I could get used to this. I liked the soft pastel colors, they were nice to look at. But I'm starting to get a headache from these new colors.

    I'm not even autistic (I think) and the blue strains my eyes - it's far too bright, the old blurple was perfect

    A lot of visually impaired people have also reported having problems with the new blue and font, as well as other neurodiverse ppl,, personally i have adhd n i also cant deal with the new blue, way too harsh, and the new pings disrupt chatflow and are too distracting

    I doubt they accessibility-tested this before rolling it out at all, given how pretty much every neurodiverse or visually impaired ppl I know or seen talk about this struggle with this change immensly. I hope they listen to the flood of ppl criticising this.

    The too bright blurple is awful. The rest of it, I could learn to live with, but that colour is migraine inducing and makes my eyeballs yell at me.
