    Hello
    i checked the footer text "theme : wordpress.com proudly powered by wordpress "
    of coraline theme color contrasts
    and it seems to me that the contrasts
    can be better for accessability
    it looks like its too low
    can some one help with this?

    Can we see your site running the unedited theme?

    On the demo, the contrast of the footer text (and some of the other text) is clearly below the levels recommended for accessibility (3.5:1 instead of 4.5:1). For the time being, you should be able to amend this by either creating a child theme for your changes or installing a custom CSS plugin.

    I'm also going to tag this for the attention of the folks at wordpress.com as this really needs to be resolved next time the theme is updated.

    Thanks, esmi - I've reported this to our developers so they can have a look.

    If it helps, I used the Colour Contrast Analyser desktop tool and found issues with the footer text and the visited link colours.

    Thank you, I've passed that along as well.
