Designing for the Color Impaired

Designing for color blindOne of the goals I’d like to see us embrace more in our overall Web presence is accessibility. I came across this helpful tool recently and thought I’d share.

Color Oracle is a free tool available for Windows, Mac and Linux that adjusts your monitor with the click of a button so that you can get an idea of how things on your screen would appear to someone with a color vision impairment. This will help you gauge if the contrast between text and background is sufficient for all visitors of your Web site so you can avoid problems with navigation or legibility.
