Accessibility - Color Contrast
When choosing colors that allow your users to clearly read your content, look to use pairings of colors that contrast well together. This not only benefits those who may be visually impaired but also increases the readability for all users.
A great way of checking the accessibility of your theme is by using WebAIMs Contrast Checker.
This will let you know if the colors you've chosen are legible to the users. For more information, check out this blog post on What is color contrast?
