  • The Readability Test Tool

    This tool allows you to check the complexity of your page and how readable it is. You can input a URL or the actual text to check how readable it is. The recommended scores are as follows:

    1. Gunning Fog and Flesch-Kincaid Grade: between 6 and 8. These values are an estimate of the number of years of schooling that would be required to understand the webpage content
    2. Flesch Reading Ease: aim for a score of around 60 to 70. The higher the score, the easier your page is to understand.

  • Colour Contrast Analyser

    This free tool works in conjunction with the WCAG2 guidelines in colour contrast which the WC3 now recommend and we also strongly endorse and follow. It allows you to compare the foreground and the background of say a button with text, to check if there is enough contrast between the two colours so that the text is visible to all users.
