How to avoid color dependency

Many of us may not think of ourselves as designers, but we do just that when we create everyday work products like documents, presentations, emails and web pages. An essential component of achieving accessible digital design is to avoid color dependency.

Color dependency is using a specific color alone to convey information, indicate an activity, prompt a response or distinguish a visual element. Examples include solely using red text to communicate a content error or changing the hue of a button when it receives focus with no other indication. The good news is that most color dependency issues are easily fixed by providing another indicator so users who cannot see color (or distinguish one color from another) can still perceive the information. In the image to the right, the "Status" column provides a second indicator beyond the yellow and red fills.
