Firefox Accessibility Tools Gain Contrast Checker
Asa Dotzler (via Zach Wood):
Today we released Firefox 68 with a color contrast audit feature in the dev tools. Before, you could inspect individual elements for color contrast. Firefox now offers a full page color contrast audit that identifies all elements on a page that fail color contrast checks. #a11y
With the addition of the color contrast audit feature in Firefox's dev tools, this will speed up accessibility audits of implemented designs. I'm excited to see more and more tools being updated to improve the process when designing and developing for accessibility. I'd love to see improved plugins or feature support for this stuff in Sketch/Figma/Photoshop.
