Re: CFC Add User Interface Component Contrast (Minimum) to Editors Draft


From: Joshue O Connor

Hi all,

I placed older SC text into the CFC - The current SC text for this one is: [1]

Essential<> visual identifiers of user interface components<> have a contrast ratio<> of at least 4.5:1 against the immediate surrounding color(s), except for the following situations:
·         Thicker: A contrast ratio<> of at least 3:1 is required where the minimum width and height are at least 3 CSS pixels<>, for the essential<> visual identifier.
·         Inactive: Disabled or otherwise inactive user interface components<>
·         User agent control: The color(s) of the user interface component and any adjacent color(s) are determined by the user agent and are not modified by the author.
·         Examples of essential<> visual indicators of user interface components<> may include (a border, edge, or icon), current value (such as non-text visual indication of aria-valuenow on a slider) and current state (such as selection indicator, focus indicator) or other essential visual indication (which do not rely on color alone).
·         Under consideration: simplify this Success Criterion by setting the minimum color contrast requirement to 3:1 and removing any need for measuring thickness.
·         Under consideration: will review to see if it is possible to combine with proposed WCAG 2.1 SC 1.4.11 Graphics Contrast.

The Working Group has reviewed and approved a Success Criterion for inclusion in the Editor’s Draft: "User Interface Component Contrast (Minimum)" with the goal of obtaining additional input external to the working group.
