Some menu items have the same background/forground color

Audacity 2.0.5 installed on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, installed distro’s version. Some of the background/foreground colors are the same for instance setting the ‘play at speed’ setting’ all I see is a black bar or the slider on the very left under ‘Mute|Solo’ is black on black. Isn’t there any way to change these colors?

This is a known issue and is listed in the release notes:

Some interface text or markings remain in black when using High Contrast light-on-dark themes, so cannot be read properly

Unfortunately the only workaround that I know of at present is to use a different desktop theme.

Thank you Steve, I’ll give that a try.
