Web Accessibility Tip of the Month

Web Accessibility - Tip of the MonthOffered as a service from the WebAIM website, Maine CITE provides the following “tip” on how to make your website more accessible to all people.

Test contrast with Chrome Developer Tools

The Chrome Developer Tools now provide easy and powerful contrast checking. Simply inspect an element and choose a text foreground color from the Style pane to see how that color aligns with WCAG 2 contrast requirements. You can even check the contrast of link or button hover and focus states. More details at WebAIM – Contrast and Color Accessibility resources.
