Chapter 6. Designing for Accessibility > Managing Your Use of Color

Managing Your Use of Color

Color is invaluable as a design tool. You use it to call attention to certain elements on your page. You use it to distinguish one type of content from another type. However, color is just as much a visual element as an image, so, as an accessibility-minded Web builder, you need to be careful about how you use it. After all, many your visitors are colorblind.

TIP

Try looking at your site designs in black and white only. If certain elements disappear without color, or if others don't have the proper emphasis, you might want to rethink your strategy.
