Colour and Contrast

Promoting easy visual access to learning content through high colour contrast.

Adequate contrast between text and background is essential for efficient visual access to learning content. Educators can adjust font and colour schemes to promote access and increase readability across a range of authoring tools. Inadequate colour contrast is one of the most common accessibility issues on the web, present on over 85% of home pages on the web (WebAIM, 2021).
