Goal


There is not enough contrast between the legend and heading backgrounds (#7fa0c1) and the text (#fff). The contrast between the background and text is 2.7:1.

In order to be accessible, the contrast ratio between text and background should be at least 4.5:1. A contrast ratio of 3:1 is the minimum level recommended by [ISO-9241-3] and [ANSI-HFES-100-1988] for standard text and vision. The 4.5:1 ratio is used to account for the loss in contrast that results from moderately low visual acuity, congenital or acquired color deficiencies, or the loss of contrast sensitivity that typically accompanies aging.
