Hi Angela,

A few tools that may suit your need for checking in the browser include:

- Chrome Color Contrast Analyzer (
http://accessibility.oit.ncsu.edu/tools/color-contrast-chrome/)

- Firefox WCAG Color Contrast Analyzer (
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/wcag-contrast-checker/)

- Firefox Juicy Studio Accessibility Toolbar (
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/juicy-studio-accessibility-too/
)

I use all of them in different capacities, so I can't say one is the best.
I do like the WCAG Color Contrast Analyzer for its ability to demonstrate
basic types of color-blindness and show how that web page may be
interpreted with those filters. Good for demos.


Take care,
Sean
