The light grey text on that slide is a a11y nightmare though. 😬

Oh, thanks for calling that out! I'm not a front-end dev, so I don't tend to think about those aspects of accessibility. It's a good reminder that it matters in presentations, too!

I just checked on the color contrast on this slide, and it's 9.8:1 (#fffcf7, #424242), so definitely a pass from WCAG. I think the apparent lack of contrast is actually a function of font size and reduced screen size or resolution with the format the slides are in here.

A reminder that color contrast is a starting place, not the end-all measure of accessibility, since I agree it is not super readable!

True, though there wouldn't have been enough time to update it after the a11y talk right before it ;) haha
