WordPress Accessibility Day 2023

Understanding Color and Contrast Requirements in WCAG 2

September 28, 2023 at 14:00 UTC

Contrast and color use are two of the trickiest areas within the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). There is a great deal of fine print that can make these topics overwhelming for designers, developers, and others who create or evaluate web content.

In this hands-on session, we will decode the contrast and color requirements in the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines WCAG 2.0 and 2.1—as well as what is being proposed in 2.2. Participants will practice evaluating contrast using free tools including the WebAIM contrast checker and link contrast checker and Chrome Developer Tools (DevTools).
