Contrast Analyser, Version 2.1

The  Colour Contrast Analyser has been updated to reflect changes in WCAG 2.0

Some important clarifications are now included:

Note:

  1. Text or images of text that are part of an inactive user interface component, that are pure decoration, that are incidental text in an image, or that are not visible to anyone, have no minimum contrast requirement.
  2. Text that is part of a logo or brand name has no minimum contrast requirement.
