People who are colour-blind are
often at a disadvantage when it
comes to using public displays and
colour-coded systems. Now, availability of computer-controlled
colour displays has made it possible
to simulate how colour blind-people
perceive a complex colour screen.
Scientists at France's Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle have @eveloped a computer algorithm that converts a colour video picture into what would see a colour blind person. Their work is based on the colour perceptions reported by people who are colour-blind in 1 eye.
