We are in the process of designing a mobile application for an Android device. It is a requirement that we have indicators for whether a function is turned on or off across the top of the screen (e.g. Connected to X, Y is activated).
The original idea was to do something like the image below, this however leads the user to believe he can turn the functionality on and off by pressing on the icon as he is used to on an Android device. In our application, it is merely supposed to be an indicator of on/off.
Another idea was to simply use icons and have them green when on, grey when off, but this will not do for colour-blind users.
How do I present these indicators without leading users to think they are buttons that can be pushed and without discriminating against colour-blind users?
