Contrast and color use are vital to accessibility. Users, including users with visual disabilities, must be able to perceive content on the screen. There is a great deal of fine print and complexity within the WCAG 2.0 that can easily confuse content creators and accessibility evaluators. Pikka lets you instantly check the contrast between two colors.
