I’d fail it but we apply the 4.5:1 to all text in DHS.  Functionally, it’s not readable.

Subject: Color contrast (Minimum)

Hi,

I have a question. I know large text that pass color contrast ratio of 3:1 would pass the color contrast. Is it possible to consider this as failure if it is barely readable with black and white or color blinded people?
