Color must not be the sole method for providing information or emphasis. For example, changing the color of text to green or red to designate if the item is active or inactive is not compliant.

  • Colors should not be used to communicate information. Instead, use bold or italics to emphasize information.
  • If you use color, it must be high contrast (i.e., dark text on light background or vice-versa).
  • Check for a color contrast of at least 4/5:1 between the text and background by using a color contrast analyzer such as WebAIM Color Contrast Checker.
