Very Large Text and Colour Contrast

6 years ago from , Lead UX / Design at Bravo!

Hi guys,

Striving to meet WCAG 2.0 (AA) for a new site and it's all pretty straight forward although I am struggling to find any documentation regarding very large text.

I have an H1 on the homepage banner that's at 90px. The background is a gradient that doesn't meet AA contrast ratio requirements - but the requirements only state text sizes of up to 18px.

Clearly my text is much bigger than this but I can't figure out what the contrast ratio should be for something so large.

Any ideas?
