Low Contrast Text

Low contrast text is the most commonly detected website Accessibilty issue.

A certain level of contrast is required in order for visually impaired people to read it. This affects older people, those with color blindness or perceptual processing disorders, and even dyslexia for whom certain color pairs will help or hurt readability.

Picking the right combination of colors for the readability is important.

Buttons like the ones in column A, might look fine to normally sited people, but they fail contrast standards. So someone who is visually impaired may not be able to read them. The buttons in column B are combinations that work for WCAG 2 AA.
