Description

Text must have a color contrast ratio of 4.5:1, icons a color contrast ratio of 3:1. The headline in .t3-page-column-header has insufficient color contrast of 2.84 (foreground color: #999999, background color: #ffffff), see WebAIM Color Contrast Checker.

Since this is a heading, a <h2>-tag should be used.

A screenreader doesn't know the purpose of the link because the link and icon have no discernible text.

On TYPO3 13.2.0-dev the column areas have been redesigned; now the text is

12px bold #000000
while the background-color is #f2f2f2

It is sufficient to be AAA compliant for small texts (https://www.learnui.design/tools/accessible-color-generator.html)

what's left?

  • Still, it is not a heading, but a plain text inside a <div> .
  • The "Edit this column icon" on its normal state has a really low contrast (disabled!) - see related issue
