Color Contrast Checker
Definition:

The color contrast checker is an automated tool used to measure the color contrast of a screen or printed designs. High values indicate a better contrast and as such are more accessible to people with visual impairments such as low vision. Low values indicate that the contrast is low, making the design generally inaccessible to people with visual impairments.
