Polarity Example for Anthony:




Discussion

Contrast polarity is a matter of luminance contrast (∆Y/Y), not color (hue/sat). The term "color contrast" is a misnomer, what is meant in WCAG is "Luminance Contrast."

All five color patches above have the same luminance of 0.31Y which is a perceptual lightness of 62.5L* (Note this is Lstar from LAB, not to be confused with L luminance).

For a large group of examples of reversed polarity stimulus, see Experiment CE15 — SAPC5 (INV) Evaluation



Myndex Perception Research

Myndex Technologies is currently researching perceptual contrast for assessing legibility and accessibility on graphically rich web pages and computer displays.
There is a live issue and discussion at GitHub, and below are links to some of our live experimental pages, evaluating the issue in detail:
     • Perception Experiments Page.
     • CVD — Color Vision Deficiency Simulation Page.

Gradients in Space

Colorspace that is — several examples of how gradients differ depending on the color space they are calculated in.

Luminance Contrast

A discussion and code examples for determining Luminance, and various methods of determining luminance contrast.

Hue Contrast Color Chart

Use this chart as you would a color wheel — only this chart presents the 12 colors in a view matrix so you can easily judge relative color contrast. Also, this chart is adjusted for perceptual uniformity, so the colors are more like pigments in the real world instead of harsh "computer" colors.
