Don’t you believe that color can affect people’s moods? So, to make people happy, it’s so important to pay attention to the best design practices. And today let’s learn how to get color accessibility in product design using the principle that you already know. Any idea?

First of all, let’s define the main principles:

  • Color accessibility. It enables people with color vision deficiencies to interact with digital experiences in the same way as their non-visually-impaired counterparts. Accounting for accessibility early on in a product’s life cycle reduces the time and money you’ll spend to make your products accessible.
  • Be sure to check the contrast ratio of your color combinations when designing things like buttons, cards, or navigation elements, There are lots of tools to help you test the accessibility of color combinations like  Colorable and Colorsafe.
  • Don’t rely on color. So, for things like error states, success states, or system warnings, be sure to incorporate messaging or iconography that clearly calls out what’s going on.
  • Focus states help people to navigate your site with a keyboard by giving them a visual indicator around elements.

These are more tips here to make your product more accessible, but remember that these only relate to color accessibility!
