For your consideration (color blindness)

edited March 2012 in Campaign Portal Building
I figured I would bring this up since I know several people who are color blind and was thinking about if some of the colors I was using contrasted enough. When creating pages I always try to keep in mind not only the color scheme I want to use, but also how it contrasts. Something I some times I still forget however is color blindness. I thought I would just throw out there a few things that people should think about if they want their pages enjoyable to the widest variety of people or incase some have color blind players.

My two favorite pages are:
"http://www.lighthouse.org/..../effective-color-contrast":http://www.lighthouse.org/accessibility/design/accessible-print-design/effective-color-contrast - A great page on the use of effective color contrast
"http://colorfilter.wickline.org/":http://colorfilter.wickline.org/ - Allows you to filter a page based off various types of color blindness

    Interesting how the examples that are difficult for color blind people are also hard on the eyes of non color blind people (like me, at least I'm pretty sure I'm not color blind)

    I second kenurion's comments.... And I ran 5 campaigns through the filter on their start pages, and they were not viewable...

    Just trying to help out.

    I agree some of those are really hard to see even for normal eyes. That green and red really hurts my eyes.


    @killervp
    Not viewable as it didn't work or as in the 5 campaigns wouldn't be viewable by color blind people?
