Does the alt text for information conveyed by color accurately provide the same information without color?


Ensure that complex information that uses color as a key also provides the same information without using color.

People with Low Vision or Color Vision Deficiency (Colorblindness) may not be able to differentiate between colors. People with Blindness or Deafblindness can’t see the colors at all.
