By Tools -> Options -> LibreOffice -> Application Colours you can choose a colour for AutoSpellCheck. This applies to the wavy line below the word with the incorrect spelling, but not to the character colour of the same word in the spelling dialog opened via Tools -> Spelling...
For people with visual impairment who choose a dark document background an bright colours for text this is a problem. The character colour in the dialog should therefore be changed to the same colour as the wavy line.
Remark: bugs #95684 and #105527 have a connected issue, but do not deal with the same problem, they are rather more general.
I think this would only be useful, if the background of the spelling dialog is also dark. But is this possible?
Yes, if the background colour for documents is changed, it is changed for the dialog, too. Otherwise it would indeed be nonsense to ask for the change of the chararacter colour.
If I change the document background colour or the application background colour the background of the spelling dialog is still white.
Would say yes as there are more reasons to adjust the color than for dark backgrounds. On the other hand, the dialog has a slightly different identification by bold and colored single word instead of wavy underline and colored multiple words. Other opinions?
Dieter Praas was right in asking if the background of the field in the dialog could be dark. I would have sworn that it had changed when I changed the document background colour (see comment #2), but I cannot reproduce it, so I must admit that I probably beguiled myself.
B u t it can be changed when choosing a high contrast theme, as I was informed by Regina and the person who inspired my bug report. In Windows 10 there are 3 (of 4) high contrast themes that use a black background. A person that chooses one of these will very probably also choose a dark, although not necessarily black, background for the documents, as did indeed my informant.
Then he will choose a light colour for the wavy line below the error in the document, and the same colour would be certainly more appropriate in the spelling dialog than the original red colour which does not provide much contrast to the dark background.
No one disagreed, so please implement the change as suggested and respect background and foreground colors as configured by the user.
