Bug ID: 116241
           Summary: Customizing value highlighting colors for colorblind
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: Inherited From OOo
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Keywords: accessibility
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: Calc
            Blocks: 101912, 112451

In Calc when View -> Value Highlighting is enabled, values are displayed as
"Text cells are formatted in black, formulas in green, number cells in blue,
and protected cells are shown with light grey background, no matter how their
display is formatted."

I received feedback that eg. green can be particularly hard/impossible to see
for colorblind users (of course it depends on the kind and degree of
colorblindness), so a way to configure the highlight colors could be useful.

As far as I can see the fixed colors are set here:
void ScOutputData::SetSyntaxMode( bool bNewMode ) { ... }

I'm not sure where the best place to set the colors would be: Application
Colors vs. Expert Configuration.
One could also argue towards setting up color profiles for different kinds of
color blindnesses, and provide sensible defaults, but that looks like a larger
chunk of work.
