accessibility with custom colors - how? (dex3703) - 1/14/2008 11:34 AM PST RRS feed

  • Question

  • By: dex3703


    How do you set the colors for controls while allowing the High Contrast and 
    other settings to work? The accessibility best practices say to do this, but 
    don't explain how.
    
    Our design is all custom colors, but we need to be accessible also.
    
    Thanks in advance,
    Derek
