Website Accessibility and Color Design

This website provides an interactive accessibility color wheel that allows the user to mix and match foreground and background colors. The bilingual tool evaluates how accessible the color combination is based on different vision deficiencies and normal vision.

This is an awesome tool! It allows you to pick from different text and background colors. The tool allows people to choose color pairs that are more universally designed. It simulates three types of vision deficiencies. If the website gives you a check mark, the contrast between the colors is good.

This was an amazing resource for all text based things not just websites. It shows whether or not a foreground/background combo is accessible and what that combination looks like to people with different visual impairments. Overall, incredible useful and user friendly.

This resource has a lot of value because more and more of our lives are taking place online, and there is a bigger push for websites to be optimally designed for persons with disability.

I believe that having a job is a civil right. Those who are qualified for and want to work should not be denied that right because of an inaccessible building or an outdated set of assumptions about what they can or cannot do..."
