Hello Jim,

Thanks for the reply! Can you please confirm my understanding of the contrast ratio formula… The current contrast ratio formula does not take into account low lighting conditions, and instead only accounts for normal ambient light. Is that correct?

Also, to meet accessibility standards regarding contrast ratios- do we not need to account for lighting conditions then?

Thanks,
Rachael
