It may be because of it's stricter rules, which could result in writing more accessible code, but the code accessibility is ultimately determined by the developer who writes it, so you can write accessible code in xhtml transitional too.

Also, for you particular concern, you might find this very useful in picking the right colors for the site, to assure everyone can see it:

It isn't.

YOU are the one that makes a page better or worse, depending on YOUR use of colours, font-sizes, contrast, animations, images. The doctype has no effect on these things.

PS And XHTML has no advantages over HTML in the real world.
