Are there any options in Jira Align to account for color blindness?

Theodore Gill September 28, 2022

Are there any options in Jira Align to account for color blindness? The legend for the Program Board is color based which is limiting for those with color blindness.

Hi @Theodore Gill

Thank you for reaching out. The Program Board is one of the reports actively being reviewed by the Atlassian Accessibility QA team.  Once the QA team completes the review the will provide us with recommended areas for improvement and techniques to make the product more accessibility. 

For now the best option may be highlight over issues to see which ones have Planning Issues via the tooltip then drilling into the object for specific issues. 

The background Hexcode color could also be leveraged if a tool could surface it:

The only setting for the colors within Align are under the Platform settings and the General tab.  This sets the color for various areas.  This is, unfortunately, a global setting and not user specific.
