A color contrast checker is a tool that helps designers and developers check the contrast between two colors. The contrast between two colors is important for accessibility and readability, particularly for users with visual impairments.
Color contrast checkers work by analyzing the color values of the foreground and background colors and calculating the contrast ratio. They can also provide recommendations for adjusting the color values to meet the desired contrast ratio.
An evaluation ratio of a minimum of 4:1 is usually considered to be the minimal assessment ratio for text and snapshots. at the same time as a contrast ratio of a minimum of 7:1
Many color contrast checkers are available online and as browser extensions, and some design software also include built-in color contrast checking features. Some color contrast checkers also include features such as simulating different types of color blindness to help designers test the accessibility of their designs for users with color vision deficiencies.
