Web accessibility means that websites, tools, and technologies are designed and developed so that people with disabilities can use them. More specifically, people can:
- perceive, understand, navigate, and interact with the Web
- contribute to the Web

Colour Contrast Analyser is primarily a tool for checking foreground & background colour combinations to determine if they provide good colour visibility. It also contains functionality to create simulations of certain visual conditions such as colour blindness.

The Colour Contrast Analyser is compatible with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2 (WCAG 2.0).
