Color blindness is a visual deficiency that can affect a person’s ability to perform everyday functions. Apps can make it easier for sufferers to identify colors and carry out regular activities.
Color blindness is the decreased ability to perceive or distinguish colors. It’s a genetic disorder, though some people may become color-blind due to eye damage or increasing age. The most common types of color blindness are red-green color blindness and blue-yellow color blindness. People with color blindness may find it difficult to perform everyday tasks like reading traffic lights, buying fruits, or selecting what to wear. Most color-blind individuals will adapt to these challenges, but may never be able to fully grasp the beauty of life and the wonder of color. Fortunately, color blindness applications like Color Blind Pal are designed to help color blind people see colors better and enjoy life. The app works by shifting the range of colors of objects so a color-blind person can differentiate and know what every other person is seeing.
Also, many non-color blind people may find it difficult to relate with color blind people and the challenges they go through. People with achromatopsia (total or partial loss of color vision) will have trouble with things others take for granted. Color blindness can affect access to education, grades, and career choices. Knowing how color blind people see the world can help you understand the world from their point of view and also help you learn practical skills in helping a color-blind person. To this end, Chromatic Vision Simulator is a color-blind simulator app that makes a simulation of color deficiencies. This app creates a video of each chromatic using your device’s camera, showing you how people with color deficiencies perceive the world in real-time.
Finally, difficulty in harmonizing colors is another problem color blind people experience. It’s not very ideal, for example, going out with an outfit that’s a mismatch of colors because of visual impairment. Even some non-color blind individuals sometimes have trouble establishing color harmony. As such, some apps are designed to help people with color deficiencies identify, match, and coordinate colors. With Colorblind Helper & Simulator, for instance, users take a photo of the colors or select from their gallery, and then the app does the matching. It can also tell color names and provide information that will help a color-blind person achieve better color harmony and function as an independent adult.
