An Empathetic Eye Towards Color Blindness

The bivouac recently benefited from a greater understanding of some of the nuances associated with color blindness. VisCheck allows users to enter a URL of a web page they wish to view in the same way as those with one of the three variants of color blindness would see the pages. Users can also choose to apply the VisCheck color blindness simulation to specific images. This kind of application can go a long way towards helping us understand one another better...and towards possibly avoiding some dangerous interface decisions that can be made without paying proper attention to color blindness issues.
