Color Contrast Analysis (WCAG Compliance Test)

With this tool you can easily test background and text color combinations for optimal readability and conformance to the accessibility standards proposed by the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).

To use the tool, simply pick your background and text colors from your current palette using the swatches at the left. As soon as you change your color combination, the WCAG 1.0 and 2.0 result will be displayed below, alongside an indication of the AA or AAA compliance (AAA being the highest possible compliance level).
