We have reworded the situation to 'If the color of particular words,
backgrounds, or other content is used to indicate information'. The
situation you describe where a text string is being used that happens
to be the name of a color does not require any accessibility
techniques. If it's text, it's accessible just like any other text as
long as it is not referring to a colored object.
