I am using the Keyboard Viewer in recorded video screenshots to demonstrate the action of keystrokes on an app. The keyboard window is small, the produced video is compressed, and as a result it is very hard for many people in the audience to perceive what keys are pressed during the presentation (pressed keys are outlined in dark brown/purple on a black background).
The previous UX for the Keyboard Viewer was a lot more accessible and legible.
I am not expressing an opinion - tools like WebAIM give this color combination a Contrast Ratio Fail rating across all three categories, with a very low 2.02:1 contrast rating against the surrounding background color.
Current Keyboard Viewer on Catalina:
Can you tell which keys are pressed? I didn't think so
Previous Keyboard Viewer on High Sierra:
Can you tell which keys are pressed? Yes you can! Yes you can!
Is there a way to use the more accessible, gray Keyboard Viewer on Catalina?
Given that Apple has always had very inclusive Accessibility Guidelines, I am hoping that I am missing a setting somewhere and that this poor UX decision can be reversed.
