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.

Contrast of Link/Button States

Links and buttons must provide sufficient contrast to their background color, even when presented in their various states, such as when hovered with a mouses or focused via keyboard navigation. Links and buttons are often styled to change color in these states. Because hover and focus states typically indicates the exact moment that the element is being read, it is best to change the colors to increase the contrast in theses states rather than decrease the contrast.
