Accessible Purples

Color contrast is not just about choosing the right colors, it is also about choosing the right text size. Some colors only work for large text while others can work for small and large text

  • Small Text: There is no definition for small text. 12 pt (16 px) is the best practice for smallest accessible text size.
  • Large text: 18 pt (24 px) or larger, 14 pt bold (18 px) or larger.
