What are your favorite tools to use to stay in compliance with WCAG standards? I just wrote an article on a couple tools that I use on a daily basis and think they make my job as a designer so much easier!

The first step in my process is to remove color all together! I usually start my designs in black and white and then once I have the design ready to go, I start adding color. But of course there are times when I already have color and need to test this. I love the photoshop tool where I can just click a button and bam, all the color disappears on the page ( https://www.adobe.com/accessibility/products/photoshop.html )

And then after the designs are done, or if I am just starting out on the color palette, I like to test my colors before I fall in love with them. A few of my favorite tools for checking color contrast are:

1.  WCAG 2.0 AA Standards Contrast Checker 

2. Web Aim
