"Fancy a little D.I.Y?"

Colour Check

Checkpoint 2.2 of the WAI guidelines requires that colour combinations created between foreground and background colours provide sufficient contrast when viewed by someone with colour deficits or when viewed on a black and white screen.

Our online Colour Check determines the colour difference and contrast between any two colours.

You can check your own colour combination by specifying the hexidecimal values of a foreground and a background colour below. For example use #FF0000 for red, or #000000 for black.
