Color Oracle is a Free Color Blindness Simulator for Designers
Color Oracle is a free app that makes simulating color blindness easy, allowing for a real time look at how those with different types of color impairments will view images on screen. The utility “takes the guesswork out of designing for color blindness” and according to it’s developers, uses the best available algorithm for simulating color recognition impairments.
Color Oracle is available as a free download for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux, and a valuable addition to any designers toolkit.
Considering that color blindness effects as high as 8% of the male population, if you’re a print, web, or app designer, you’ll want to know what your creations will look like to those who are affected.
