The colors you use in your document can help communicate your message and define your brand, but using color the wrong way can make it difficult or impossible for some users to understand your message. Clear color contrast can make it easier for users to differentiate text and background colors, while multiple indicators can help people distinguish between two objects of similar or perceived similar color

  • Use sufficient contrast between foreground and background colors.
  • Use a color contrast tool, such as Colour Contrast Analyser from the Paciello Group, to ensure sufficient contrast.
  • Do not use color as the only means of signifying or describing content in your document.
