App that helps color blind students do lab experiments

A team of scientists in Kolkata have developed a smartphone app that helps color blind and visually impaired students detect color changes in a routine lab experiment. This will help them participate actively in lab experiments without the need for support.

The app, which is called Titration ColorCam, is another big step forward towards developing mobile technology that can help blind students who want to study science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

The design and development of the app was focused on the problems faced by color-blind students in chemistry labs so they can do experiments independently and with ease. It can be freely downloaded from the Google Play Store on Android devices with platform version 2.2 and up.
