Colour contrast

Not everyone has perfect eyesight, especially in poor light. Poor contrast can be tested, together with other accessibility issues, using the web accessibility evaluation tool, WAVE, or by inspecting an element using browser tools.

A summary of WAVE's of the WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines):

A contrast ratio of at least 7:1 for normal text and 4.5:1 for large text.
WCAG 2.0 level AA
A contrast ratio of at least 4.5:1 for normal text and 3:1 for large text.
WCAG 2.1
A contrast ratio of at least 3:1 for graphics and user interface components.
