Colour contrast and other accessibility issues
24th Aug 2006
Wow, it's been a pretty full-on week for hot web accessibility discussion with four considerable posts worth reading:
- Roger Johansson considered the implications of using light text on dark background vs. readability
- Jeff Croft asked if accessibility has been taken too far?
- Veerle Pieters gave her reactions to Roger's post
- Mike Cherim stated it's not all quite black and white
The comments on the Jeff Croft post, in particular those between John Foliot and Jeff, are very entertaining.
As an aside, what a shocker having been staring at the Jeff Croft comments for a good ten minutes (which are light text on dark background) then jumping to my feedreader which is the opposite in contrast, my vision was completely fuzzy. Is this an as-yet-undiscovered accessibility issue in the making?
