Colour

Select an option:


 

The Light colour mode is designed using Disability Sport Wales brand colours, to meet Web Content Accessibility Guidance Level AA. This should provide good contrast for most users.

The Dark colour mode also uses Disability Sport Wales brand colours, but inverts light and dark to create a "night mode" version. It is intended for people who dislike bright screens, or wish to use their display in a more energy-efficient way. This option does not meet Web Content Accessibility Guidance Level AA, so may not be suitable for users with visual impairments.

The Calm colour mode uses colours which may be more suitable for users who are sensitive to bright colours, or prefer lower contrast. This option does not meet Web Content Accessibility Guidance Level AA, so may not be suitable for users with visual impairments.

The High Contrast option is tailored to meet Web Content Accessibility Guidance Level AAA, and is intended to make this website as accessible as possible to users with the lowest visual acuity. Ideal use of this setting would be combined with Medium Text or Large Text text sizes.


Buttons

Our default button style uses block-colour backgrounds that contrast against the page background.

You can optionally change this to use buttons that maintain the same background colour and text colour as the main website content, and signifies that is a button with an outline. This may be preferred by users who can read light-on-dark or dark-on-light with greater comfort.

Use of Capital Letters
