Colors for the Color Blind
This site is about color blindness or, more correctly, color deficiency. Briefly, it describes the condition, causes, and effects. The primary purpose, however, is to furnish a set of color charts to aid the color blind in working with computer colors, most especially on the internet and in web sites. There is also some really nice software (shareware/freeware) here for checking colors onscreen on your computer - great for anyone, but especially for the colorblind!
