From the news page
"Switches no longer use the explicit ON and OFF text, instead using color to indicate state."
How about of for people?

@JoergSorge @gnome The switches now show the standard I/O symbols as used in real-world power buttons instead of the on/off text, and a switch's on/off state state is read out by screen readers.

Orca screen reader may have to be hacked to get around this; far better, GNOME devs, Keep the text, or give them the 'checkbox' role?

@JoergSorge @gnome I'm pretty sure that it has no connection to the way screen reader narrates button states
