Simple CSS Dark Theming for Accessibility

By Rhiana Heath,

2019 Accessibility development

There are two main types of themes a website or application can have: a light or dark theme.

For example, a light theme could be black text on a white background, and a dark theme, white text on a black background. Most websites just have the one light theme by default, but more and more are adapting to have a dark theme as well.

How we made our website Accessible

By Rhiana Heath,

2019 Accessibility design development

Recently our website has undergone a massive design upgrade. It was a very large undertaking involving a team of designers, front end developers and copy writers. Everyone was very eager to get it out the door, so, as with a lot of websites and applications, making sure it was accessible was not made a priority. While there was nothing major wrong, it missed a fair amount of small accessibility features that improve the usability of the site. So I made it my mission to find them all and upgrade as many as I could.

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) guidelines for accessibility has a large checklist, so I got to work testing each one to see if we passed or failed. Starting with level A and when that was done level AA, following the same steps I undertake for our clients when we perform an Accessibility Review.
