Quick Tip: Color Reliance

Web Accessibility Tip of the MonthThe recent WebAIM Survey of Users with Low Vision revealed that over 50% of respondents enable high contrast or override browser colors or styles. This means that many users with low vision will not be seeing your page in the colors you have defined. Web pages should be designed so they maintain their usability, even when the color information is lost or changed. While the wise use of color will enhance usability and accessibility, ensure that color is not used as the only mechanism for conveying information, meaning, or functionality
