Accessible Combinations

This is a list of color combinations of our color palette that pass WCAG 2.0 color contrast guidelines. Combinations displayed here pass either the AAA, AA, or AA Large WCAG conformance levels for contrast. AAA and AA combinations are safe to use at any type size. AA Large combinations are safe to use for large text.

To meet AA Large conformance, type must be at least 24px, or 19px if bold. This standard is typically written in terms of pt units (18pt and 14pt bold, respectively), which is equivalent to the pixel sizes noted above as the ratio between pt and px is 1pt = 1.3333px.

For more details on appropriate color contrast, see the WCAG description.
