Just bought @danrabbit’s lovely Harvey app on the @elementary App Centre. It tells you the WCAG colour contrast between any two colours you pick on screen.

Just merged for elementary OS 6: Caps Lock and Num Lock indicators! You’ll be able to turn them on in the Keyboard Settings—especially handy for laptops that don’t have their own indicator light.
