Microsoft app helps colour blind see better
November 19, 2016
Microsoft has created a new app to help colour blind users to see a greater spectrum of different colours.
It is called Color Binoculars and it acts like a colour window for those who have difficulty in seeing different parts of the colour spectrum.
The app makes reds brighter and greens darker so that the difference is more obvious. It also replaces difficult colour combinations, like red and green, with combinations that are easier to separate like pink and green.
The app has three different viewing modes - red/green, green/red and blue/yellow. This improves and defines the colours in those much better.
The app is available on iOS.
