Colour Contrast Check

Tags:

When I’m making sure that text is legible I usually just eyeball it, but apparently there are set standards from the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) concerning how much contrast you need between your text and background colors.  I came across this nifty little tool that will allow you to check if your colors are compliant.  You can move around the sliders or copy/paste your hex colors and it’ll tell you if you have enough contrast.  It’s not much to look at, but it gets the job done.
