Update NVDA Icon #7446
Summary of the issue:
New icon should have better contrast so that is shows up better on Windows 10 taskbar / start menu. A more modern "flat" design.
Description of how this pull request fixes the issue:
Includes the new icon and svg source for the icon. Description of the change to the icon:
The previous dark grey shaded icon has been in use for nearly 10 years. It was first created for Windows XP, which had a light grey system tray which showed up the dark grey logo very well. Recent versions of Windows have moved towards a darker system tray. There is very little contrast with the existing NVDA icon. The updated icon features a similar logo in flat white, on a solid purple background. This ensures it will be visible on any colour background, and uses the purple from the NV Access logo.
The logo is a stylised blend of the letters NVDA. It has a vertical line on the left with a little hook at the bottom. Then from the top, a straight diagonal line comes down to the right. Next, a line curves in a semi-circle out to the right then back up to the top, and finally there is a little hook down to finish. The vertical and diagonal lines make the first part of the letter N and also the letter A (without the cross bar). The diagonal and curved lines form a V, and the curve is the right part of the D.
Locally built the launcher and installed. Inspected the icon in the taskbar / tray / start menu.
