Color Contrast Analyser for Sketch

alt tag

A Sketch plugin that calculates the color contrast of two layers and evaluates it against the WCAG. The test may pass AAA, AA or fail because of a lack of contrast. And even when you do not need to meet those requirements, you can get a feeling for the contrast when you get used to the values. This might help you design accessible content.

AA requirements

Color contrast of 4.5:1 or 3.0:1 for large text

AAA requirements

Color contrast of 7.0:1 or 4.5:1 for large text

(Large text means regular text larger than 18pt or bold text larger than 14pt)
