Before I get started, I’d like to give a disclaimer that on paper, I am not defined as a “designer” anywhere. I got off that train after a 2-year-no-longer-existing college that’s still drowning me in debt made me seek a better education at the college I eventually got my BA from. I’d also like to confess that I took advanced color theory because credits allowed me to skip the two introductory courses – and that was the biggest mistake I’d ever made. Color is hard and Pratt didn’t play around. Therefore, color, is not my forte.
However, I’m getting better at it! Let’s improve together, shall we?
So, in this fourth installment of my accessibility series, I’d like to review choosing colors for your WordPress site. First, we’ll talk about why choosing the right colors for web accessibility is important. Then there will be a brief overview on color theory with some links pointing you toward those “designers” on paper that could provide deeper insights than I can. Finally, we’ll jump into our WordPress stylesheets and change some key selectors that should make a difference right away in improving our theme’s accessibility. Let’s get started!
