Website Accessibility Testing Tool

Relying on colors to determine a web page visibility and contrast can be misleading. Converting the colors to their grayscale equivalents is a more reliable method for choosing a color scheme for a page. By removing color’s influence, you’ll better find true visual contrast.

GrayBit is an online accessibility testing tool designed to visually convert a full-color web page into a grayscale rendition for the purpose of visually testing the page’s perceived contrast. So that a web page designer can choose an appropriate color scheme for his design.

Currently the tool works best on websites that make use of CSS and a standardized markup. Sites that use style information within tables or use frames may not be properly converted. Moreover, certain site Java Scripts may not function as expected. This would include imagery as found in remotely generated ads.
