Don't blur the answer we put in when we click "check"

Sometimes I want to make sense of my answer, right or wrong. But I have to squint my eyes and go right up to my screen to even see my answer because they for some reason put it in really light grey. Can you guys keep it black so I can see what I submitted?

I think it's the first post about this in the english forum but we had a discussion about it in the french forum already . Some people notice it , others don't . I don't like it personally, I would like to take the time to see my answer and think about it, whether it's right or wrong . it's difficult now, the writings are so pale . It's changed since one of the update lately, another good idea to make us squint our eyes ! (I'm on the website on a computer and google chrome )

Yes, I find this frustrating too. I'm using the website. I find it's only on one exercise type - the one where you click on tiles to form a sentence - when the 'gray' is too light. The other exercises gray out the answer, but it's still readable.

I have also found that (only very slightly, admittedly) annoying.

It would be better to use some other method of distinguishing the text as "used" - perhaps some sort of marker at each end of the text? Or underlinining? Something added rather than taken away.

What system are you on?

I can’t say I have seen the answer get blurred or change colour.

I am mostly on iPhone.

In Chrome, I use this add-on extension:

I'm on a desktop though.

Those mess with other parts of your browser. I used to use one, and I couldn't see images in Google docs. Took some time to figure that one out.

I have old eyeballs and my answer shows up OK. Could be a system related thing.
