How can I determine what website colors and contrast are best for readability?
AppDevGuy 1 year ago
I ran into an issue that I've never had before when designing a website for a client that happened to be colorblind. When I showed him the prototype, he couldn't read a significant portion of the text that looked perfectly legible to me. I don't know exactly how prevalent color blindness is, but there must be millions of people for whom this is an issue. In this particular case, once I was aware of his colorblindness, I could simply adjust the palate to address it. But more broadly, is there a way to check contrast/color to ensure the widest range of readability?
