Accessibility; font size and color contrast

i'm looking for a tool (or information) regarding accessibility. of course i know the common tools and w3c pages. what i'm looking for is a way to check the combination of fontsize and color-contrast.

tools like Colour contrast Analyzer are nice and helpful, but  i'm absolutely sure contrast can be lower using  - for example -  helvetica/50px/bold instead of times/12px/light/italic.

Color palette / scheme for use at night ?


I'm looking for some best practices or guidelines for color schemes
used in our port management system at night or in low light

At our company we have shift workers on vessels in the harbour, who
also work at night. Having to look at bright coloured, high contrast
screens all night is more tiring than we expected.

Is it common to introduce a 'night color scheme' which is more easy
to read or look at ?

And how would a standard 'night' theme look like ?

With regards,

Rutger van Dijk
