Text is hard to read

In the subcommunity below the community name and community description are really hard to read: there isn't enough contrast between the white letters and the light background colours and the dot with the map icon is also not very helpful to read the text that is projected on top of it.

    Hi there RGM71,

    Better this way?

    Hi @Ekman,

    It is better now, but especially at the location of the black dot with the white symbols it's still difficult to read.

    Yes, agree. Should be made better readable.

    Should be a grey text with a black outline, that will contrast with all backgounds

    Something like this ?

    Also with grey letters the text at the black dot is still very hard to read. It's all about enough contrast between background colour and colour of the letters. To choose the right text colour when using a background with a combination of light and dark background colours looks rather impossible.

    Or something like this?

    To me the first one one is the best by far. And then maybe also applied to the words 'Map quality'.

    Common theme with modern apps everywhere, and very annoying. Colour contrast is a requirement for accessibility compliance and should be common sense. I can never see the pale blue field outlines on white back grounds.

    it's better now, but it's particularly difficult to read with the white symbols.
