Check the contrast for all text

Check as complete

Text should have sufficient contrast against its background to be readable.

Level AA compliance requires a contrast ratio of:

  • 3:1 for large text (>18pt normal, >14pt bold)
  • 4.5:1 for body text (<18pt normal, <14pt bold)

Use Webflow’s color picker to check contrast. When choosing a font color, the color picker will tell you if your contrast ratio is AA or AAA compliant. It also automatically adjusts the ratio for text is larger than 24px.
