How can we improve Talis Aspire Reading Lists?

Reviewing draft list - difficult to read text with a grey background

When reviewing a list the item area is greyed out if the review is for a draft list. It's not easy to read the text with a grey background. The only way to stop a draft list from being a draft is to publish it but we don't want to publish a list until a review is completed. If it’s necessary to warn staff that the list being reviewed is a draft list, we would like this information to be displayed in some other way.

    As a new user we have also found that the grey shading makes it difficult to read the content of the page. Differentiation is important but either a lighter shade or an alternative method of marking the records would be a vast improvement please.

    While I understand that the background of draft list items should be differentiated to that of published list items in the Reviews screen, the current shading used for draft lists in the Reviews section affects the readability of the text within it. The current (poor) contrast used in this section is an accessibility and usability issue for Talis Aspire.

    AA Level compliance with WCAG 2.0 accessibility guidelines require the visual presentation of text and images of text has a contrast ratio of at least 4.5:1. We are legally required to meet these guidelines and I'm pretty sure this is a breech!
