Color contrast Testing (CCT)

One of the most important accessibility aspects of a page is the color contrast - it allows user with lower levels of vision to use your application with ease.

W3C, in their Sucess Criterion 1.4.3, explain in details the acceptable levels of contrast - checkout the details here.
