Acquia Launches Color Contrast Checker for Web Accessibility

Color Contrast Checker

Acquia has introduced a color contrast checker tool to assist web designers in ensuring their websites meet Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and international accessibility standards. This tool allows users to test the contrast ratio between background and text colors, helping to create visually accessible websites. Users can input colors in RGB or hexadecimal format and adjust lightness levels to achieve the desired contrast. The tool supports compliance with WCAG 2.2 Level AA and Level AAA requirements, essential for readability among users with color insensitivity or low vision.

Acquia emphasizes that proper color contrast is crucial for accessibility, with statistics indicating that 4.5% of the U.S. population experiences difficulty distinguishing hues. The color contrast checker, available on the Acquia website, provides a free scan to evaluate and improve website design elements for better accessibility. For more details and to access the tool, visit Acquia's color contrast checker page.
