Abstract

Many websites do not satisfy minimum contrast requirements. One reason could be that designers must select colors through trial and error using contrast calculators. This paper presents a visual framework for working with color contrasts. The foreground and background colors are detected automatically, and views are presented to simulate how a design is viewed with different levels of reduced vision. Moreover, saturation-brightness plots are introduced to help make valid color choices. Color corrections are proposed and visualized.
