Web Accessibilty: Color Contrast is important for users with Color Blindness and Low Color Vision Acuity.

Please have your web design and development staff reassess and modify your current font colors to have a higher color contrast to the backgrounds they exist on.

For users who have low color acuity, are advanced in age, or have a form of color blindness, they can have difficulty or sometimes not even see text on backgrounds with a low color contrast between the two.

I work for a company that's a contractor for the Government.  Because of this relationship and our desire to have an accessible web for everyone, we strive for excellence in this area of our designs.

We're a team of 10 designers that are responsible for and take very seriously and we're able to make it happen!  No matter your team size, it's possible!

Please, do something about this on Mint.com.  I'm 27 years old, have solid vision, but red-green color blindness and find it nearly impossible to use your website.

have to use your mobile app, because I can't use your primary site anymore.

I know Intuit also owns and develops TurboTax.  You're PHENOMENAL user experience folks.  Please take an extra step and go accessible!  Anyone who works with the government (contractually) has to abide by these sorts of standards (http://www.section508.gov/).  Consider this as opportunity to increase the breadth of your business opportunities.

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
