Insufficient contrast between text and background colours can affect everyone, but contrast is especially important for those with sight difficulties. A good resource is the WebAIM Contrast Checker.

The Text Contrast tool (CircularFLO or GreenLight Accessibility Tools > Text contrast check) is a free tool to quickly check the amount of contrast between the selected text and background colours.

Useful for print design as well as digital ebooks, the tool handles CMYK or RGB colours and tints and compares all selected text fill colours with all selected object fill colours.
