The keys to unlocking barriers to learning

Color Considerations

Take into consideration people with colorblindness when choosing images and colors on your website. Make sure that color is not the only means of conveying something (such as “choose the green button to go to the next page”).

Also make sure you have enough contrast on your page in accordance with WCAG 2.0 guideline 1.4.  It is best to check your color choice using a color checker such as the color contrast checker provided by WebAIM.
