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.

"We must continue to embrace diversity and reject discrimination in all its forms, and insist on equality of opportunity and accessibility for all. Let our efforts remind us that when we work together, we can build a world free of unnecessary barriers and include every member of our international community."
