Anxious to hear responses to this one!  We have a screen that is intended to grab attention so it is the brightest orange I’ve ever seen with bolded black text.  Yes, it passes contrast, but yes, it is an assault to the eyes!

Hi everyone,
I'm curious whether there are laws, regulations or guidelines about color uses beside color contrast that is already defined in WCAG 2.0. For example: certain color that is used on the website can cause migraines or eye strains to users although it pass color contrast.

Best,
Duc
