It's a real pain to be creative and be sure what we're doing is accessible to people with low vision. Currently we have to copy hex codes over to the Juicy Studio website to check whether the contrast is accessible. It would be better to be able to do it in Photoshop without having to copy anything.

Please build in to Photoshop the ability to check for Section 508 contrast requirements.

At minimum, Do the foreground and background colors in the toolbox have sufficient contrast at the AA level for small text.

Nice to have: Find nearest foreground/background combination that meets the requirements without changing the hue.
