New accessible color palette and math tutorials
When you are designing a campus website, remember that color selection is important for both aesthetics and accessibility.
When working with an entire color palette, it is useful to know how much contrast each color combination provides. The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines provide formulas for determining whether a given two-color combination passes accessibility requirements for color contrast. The NC State Accessible Color Palette Evaluator tutorial demonstrates a tool to help you determine this information.
There are also tools for easily creating accessible Web-based math. The first two parts of the “Accessible Math” video series describe the simplest way to create accessible math online and how to create accessible math in HTML5 and MathML.
