Color Contrast Deep Dive

Join the Accessibility Ambassadors for a presentation by Jen Sanders of the Office of Information Technology. Jen will take us deep into the finer points of color contrast and accessibility.

Structure your digital content with paragraph styles in documents or heading tags in web pages.
