Visibility of 'Read' vs 'Unread' posts


Hi Team,

Since going live with the Foundation theme, we have had some feedback (particularly those with vision challenges) as to the lack of differentiation between unread and read posts, as the difference in bold and normal font type looks quite similar (As pictured below)

Suggestion to have clearer differentiation between read an unread posts.

    Hi @Mez_BCNA I came across your post :) I'm having difficulty detecting where this setting is in vanilla. Is it something automatically activated? Can you share how to find that setting?

    Yet, agreeing with you that for accessibility, some customization options would be appreciated :)

    I'd love to say we have @PiperWilson but unfortunately I don't think we've got any custom styling on this aspect on our Community before or after our rebrand ☹️
