Accessibility Color Wheel
Normal This box shows the colors with normal vision. Use: Choose a foreground color by pointing the mouse over the wheel or the vertical grey gradation strip and click or, if you have a touch screen, just touch them. Then click the "Background" button and choose a background color the same way. If a checkmark becomes visible the color pair is good for accessibility.

Color Theory for Designers, Part 1: The Meaning of Color - Smashing Magazine Color in design is very subjective. What evokes one reaction in one person may evoke a very different reaction in somone else. Sometimes this is due to personal preference, and other times due to cultural background.

Colour Contrast Check - snook.ca Date created: January 11, 2005 Date last modified: March 30, 2009 The Colour Contrast Check Tool allows to specify a foreground and a background colour and determine if they provide enough of a contrast "when viewed by someone having color deficits or when viewed on a black and white screen"[W3C]. The tool will indicate that the colours pass the test if both the colour difference and the brightness difference exceed their threshold. It will indicate that it sort of passes if only one of the two values exceed their threshold. And finally, it'll fail to pass if neither value exceeds its threshold.
