Script of the Month: Color Contrast Validator

3 4
InDesign Magazine issue 149 coverThis article appeared in Issue 149 of InDesign Magazine.

Contrast is such a key topic in the realm of accessibility that it’s mentioned in three of the articles in Issue #149 of InDesign Magazine. The various tools and services for checking contrast cited in those articles have one thing in common: They all take you out of InDesign. And, most of them involve a significant amount of manual work to check specific color combinations.

The month’s Script of the Month offers the double benefit of allowing you to check the contrast of many color combinations against the WCAG 2.1 standards in an automated fashion without ever leaving InDesign.

    Dear Mike, script looks nice, but not possible to activate it because not possible to get a validation key from [email protected]. “Delivery to the recipients failed permanently”
    A bit pitty. If you know how to work it out or advice me, I would appriciate it.
