Is it possible to change the color of \alert command in beamer. See, it is not the alertblock! For example, I would like to change to color yellow, because the standard color is red, and my background is dark blue.

Please, have a look to the manual: 17.2.3 Setting Beamer’s Colors explains in detail such a task. – Claudio Fiandrino Feb 5 '13 at 13:32

I found, the command is

\setbeamercolor{alerted text}{fg=yellow}

I was think this command changed only alertblocks. I'm sorry by your time here. Thanks
