IT Accessibility releases Color Contrast Analyzer for Chrome

NC State University IT Accessibility Office has developed a free Color Contrast Analyzer for Chrome to help you analyze textual color contrast in Web pages to meet accessibility requirements.

Analyzing the color contrast between the text foreground and background colors can be challenging when text is:

  • placed on top of an image or color gradient

  • rendered inside an image

The Color Contrast Analyzer for Chrome handles these cases by treating online content as an image and performing pixel-by-pixel analysis of the image. For additional information on how to get and use this tool, see the NC State University IT Accessibility Blog and the Color Contrast Analyzer for Google Chrome YouTube video.
