The Saga of Accessible Colors
TOPIC DESCRIPTION & KEY TAKEAWAYS
Ask any accessibility leader about accessible colors and they’ll wince from the pain of struggling for a solution. Why is it so difficult to ensure your product meets WCAG 2.1 AA color contrast requirements? Ted Drake, Intuit’s Global Accessibility Leader, will explain the basics of color accessibility requirements. He will also talk about the conflict of overlapping requirements, dealing with brand colors, using color to denote hierarchy of information, and instances where adequate contrast impedes readability. You will have a better understanding of why accessible color usage is a journey and strategies for making continual progress.
