Accessibility Isn't Just the Law
Color contrast is one of many considerations when creating web applications and content that everyone can use, including people with disabilities who may use assistive technologies to access your website. It is the right thing to do, the smart thing to do, and it is the law.
To check text for proper contrast, visit WebAIM's color contrast checker. To find colors that meet the WCAG Guidelines in text/background contrast ratios visit Color Safe.
