What is the proposed idea/solution?

for better accessibility -  please label the colours with text - when hovering over in the base design

How does is solve the user problems?

1 in 12 men and 1 in 200 women have some form of colour blindness - or colour visual deficiency.  This means that distinguishing many of the colours in airtable is difficult.  Giving bases different colours is great as this is both a visual cue when you use multiple bases and interfaces - and in communicating with the teams that use them - however when some users aren't clear which colour is which (I am one and i develop tools heavily in the platform) it causes needless friction - for what should be a quick fix

How was this validated?

please see standard accessibility guidelines for using colours and ensuring those with sight problems can see the tools effectively.

Who is the target audience?

all users and all users with colour blindness - e.g. disabled providing greater accessibility.
