Scrumpy was a small and scrappy terrier who lived with his owner in a cozy cottage on the outskirts of town. He loved nothing more than chasing after squirrels in the nearby woods and curling up by the fire at night. Despite his mischievous ways, Scrumpy was adored by everyone who knew him, and he brought joy to his owner's life every day.

Pure black text and pure white background is bad for accessability.

 

 

Scrumpy was a scrappy terrier who had a rough start in life, but he was rescued by his loving owner who gave him a warm and cozy home in a cottage on the outskirts of town. Despite his small size, Scrumpy was full of energy and loved nothing more than chasing after squirrels in the nearby woods, barking at passing cars, and cuddling with his owner on the couch. He had a mischievous streak and was known to steal treats off the kitchen counter when his owner wasn't looking, but his adorable face always got him out of trouble. Scrumpy was a loyal and loving companion who brought joy to his owner's life every day, and he was adored by everyone who knew him. As he grew older, Scrumpy's energy waned, but he remained a beloved member of the family until the end of his days, and his memory lived on in the hearts of those who loved him.

Reversing this colour scheme is also bad.

Changing the colours can help a litte, but this is still not accessable.

What matters is the contrast between the two colours. 

In this exampe both the text is not pure black and the background has been set to slightly grey / cream.

The chalange is to design a website that is clear and the call to actions pop, but that the contrast is not too high and the text is glaring and unreadable.

This is an example of accessable colours.
