Can I change the text color in Modern player in Storyline 360?

Hello, 

I would like to change the text color to white or a brighter color in the modern player. I like the look and feel, but the text is gray and hard to see on the dark background. I could use the light, but I prefer the dark theme for this module. 

I can update the font and size, but I don't see any options to update the color.

Hi Lauren,

With the release of Update 50, the modern player now meets WCAG accessibility guidelines for visual contrast and color so all learners can read the text, decipher the icons, perceive the controls, and navigate easily. Learn more about modern player accessible contrast. 

Please note, we are currently on Build 3.53.25436.0.

The ability to customize the player colors is a feature that is still open with our team, but this conversation is attached so that we can share updates with you here.
