And any tools that test RGB values specifically for testing color contrast for documents rather than web?

Hi Folks,
It may be Repeated Topic, your suggestions reduces Significant
accessible design costs.
As you know Color contrast is much more important if your content is
accessible to every one!
i know there are several tools that analyze color contrast based on WCAG 2.0
Color contrast algorithem at the development stage.
Namely, CCA, Juicy studio color contrast analyser, and so on!. they are
awesome, but are there any tools or addons or plugins to test color contrast
at the design stage? any tools/addons for adobe fireworks and adobe photo
if there any, are they accessible to Screen Readers? Also throw some
light on test procedures to verify color contrast at the design stage!
