More thoughts and speculations.

Sometimes you'll enter stuff on a form and push submit and it says,
"Invalid entry, please review the fields marked in red"
Can we do anything with that?

I thought about a color command that would tell you the color of the current line, but that might be too coarse.
The line could have 10 words and each word could be inside a span and each span could be a different color.
The color of the first word? The color of all the words?
So then I wondered about a more global command, like

colors red

that shows you all the lines that have red words on them.
That's what a sighted person does; a quick scan.

But they may actually be marked magenta, or #ff0000, not the English word red,
so you might also need a colors command to list all the colors used in the document.
You see darkred and then you can issue colors darkred.

These commands wouldn't be very efficient but they're hardly ever used so it's fine.
Maybe there is a better or clearer UI for this.
