Is there a setting for having links in text underlined?

We're working in confluence and for me it's very very hard to recognize links in text. As there are rules and legislation for accessibility I asked our maintainer to add underlines to links. He could not find any setting for this. 

Does anyone know where the option is to make links clearer for eveybody?

Addteq's app for Jira and Confluence is a great option for visually impaired users! It allows your Jira & Confluence instances to be compliant and offers your users ease of use. Hope this helps anyone in need!

Well it is good to know that in our team most of us are not visually impaired. But we still find it very hard to see the links within our texts in confluence. That's why we need underlined links in running texts. That's the only thing we need. Is Addteq's app the right tool for this purpose?

But on the other hand, thanks for your reply. We work a lot with visually impaired people. It's good to know there are addons if they are getting stuck.
