Re: accessible login

Hey artists,

the new gdm has a nice and easy way to turn on HighContrast / LargePrint themes.
You can see screenshots of it here:


Unfortunately, as the screenshots show, a number of the icons that gdm
uses don't have
HighContrast versions, which makes the experience a bit less awesome
than it could be.

The list of required icons is fairly short, so it seems doable to
reach a 100% accessible login screen, as far as icons are concerned:

preferences-desktop-accessibility (this may just need to be scaled down)
session-properties (not in the screenshots)
Regarding the icons used in the buttons, I don't think the buttons should use any icons at all, as the word clearly speaks for itself and the icons used currently only lead to confusion (and uglyness).
I filed a bug on this a while ago [1]

Regarding the other icons, it seems that we have all the icons you listed, except preferences-desktop-keyboard (and possibly session-properties, couldn't find it) in the HighContrast-SVG folder/theme [2]. I'm not sure what the status is on that set though. Calum or Luca should know.
