What are the Criteria for Color Contrast in WCAG?
- Large Text
Since large texts are easier to read, their color contrast requirement includes 3:1. According to the WCAG, a large text is when the text is at 18pt and larger; when it's bold, it should be larger than 14pt.
There is no color accessibility requirement for text that is part of a brand name or logo.
Any image of text or text that is there for decoration, is part of an inactive user interface, is present with other visual content, or is invisible to any reader does not need to comply with the WCAG color contrast accessibility.
