Jean-Eric Pelet's insight:
How to use

As you type, the contrast ratio indicated will update. Hover over the circle to get more detailed information. When semi-transparent colors are involved as backgrounds, the contrast ratio will have an error margin, to account for the different colors they may be over.

This sample text attempts to visually demonstrate how readable this color combination is, for normal or bold text of various sizes and font styles.

Hint: Press the up and down keyboard arrows while over a number inside a functional color notation. Watch it increment/decrement. Try with the Shift or Alt key too!

Contrast ratio - Lagom LCD test

Contrast ratio - Lagom LCD test | color | Scoop.it
Jean-Eric Pelet's insight:

The contrast ratio is the ratio between the amount of light coming from the screen when it is displaying bright white, and the amount of light when it is supposed to be display pure black. Typical LCD monitors have contrast ratios ranging from 150:1 to 800:1. For general applications (photo editing, office work), one could consider 400:1 or higher a fairly good contrast. However, if you watch a movie from such a monitor in a darkened environment, you will still notice that "black is not really black". Most laptop monitors have pretty low contrast ratios (150:1 when viewed straight-on and below 80:1 at relatively small angles).

Manufacturers often inflate the contrast ratio numbers, so one shouldn't rely on that number for making a purchase decision. For example, the number could be measured for a contrast setting that blows away the details in the lighter tones (see theContrast test), or only for a very restricted viewing angle. Large-size monitors (above 20 inch) often suffer from "backlight bleed" near the edges, which means that the contrast ratio is lower near the bottom and top. Some monitors will turn down the backlight when the display is dark ("dynamic contrast"), a trick which some people may find disturbing while watching a movie.

It is possible to measure the actual contrast ratio with a digital camera. You can submit your results to the Contrast-ratio database so that other people can compare it.
