Your daily frequent11y newsletter, brought to you by @ChrisBAshton:

We’re almost halfway through January, and this is the first time I’ve given my dai11y newsletter the correct year in the name! 😂 I’ve now gone back and fixed all previous dai11y newsletters from 2022. Apologies if I led anyone to believe they’d gone back in time.

A useful micro website by Stephanie Eckles. It explains the requirements for accessible contrast on buttons, and includes a generator for creating buttons of sufficient contrast.

You have the option of using a colour picker, or switching to “Use text input” mode to put in the CSS hex codes that you intend to use. The generator will then tell you whether or not the button has sufficient contrast, factoring in whether or not the button will be used with ‘large text’ (which is subject to different contrast requirements, detailed on the website).

Did you know that you can subscribe to dai11y, week11y, fortnight11y or month11y updates! Every newsletter gets the same content; it is your choice to have short, regular emails or longer, less frequent ones. Curated with ♥ by developer @ChrisBAshton.
