Can You Customize the Site Color Scheme?
This article discusses the color theme used in the platform and how the color theme relates to accessibility.
Current platform color theme
Our platform uses a standardized blue color theme, which assists our organization in meeting WCAG compliance for contrast. CorpU also is working to change other platform colors to meet AA compliance. Below are common questions related to the color theme used in the platform.
Frequently asked questions
- Are there additional color options (still WCAG compliant) we can explore beyond the blue for our site? There are not currently any available color options to explore at this time as this is a systematic approach to using WCAG coloration while solving accessibility issues across all clients.
- What is the likelihood of the blue changing to another color in the future? Either resulting from a company decision or an accessibility compliance decision? There are no plans to change the default blue color theme in the future. However, there are several shades of blue used throughout the platform that we will continue to analyze and update accordingly based on WCAG compliance and company branding design standard best practices in the future. For example, color settings can also affect users with light sensitivities, not just those with color blindness.
- How was the color change in the platform to blue determined from an accessibility standpoint? The blue color was selected because it represents our brand family of colors and was the optimized color to use for contrast with respect to WCAG compliance. The blue color was the optimal choice from our style guide that we could apply to all client sites while ensuring accessibility for all users.
We are not planning to add colors based on our existing roadmap. Our primary commitment is full WCAG compliance for all users.
