Safe web colours for colour-deficient vision

Showing 1 - 7 of 7 Comments
Hey folks.

I've just created a group for safe web colours for colour-deficient vision here - Unambiguous Colours (http://www.colourlovers.com/group/Unambiguous_Colours). Please join if you've an interest in visual accessibility on the web!

Happy to have critiques, etc, I'm going to be putting up colour palattes I've found or discovered that seem to be fairly safe for people with varying forms of colour blindness so website design can become more accessible and open for all. Part of my job involves developing front ends for complex graphing and mapping systems which gets a bit crazy when you're looking at colours, palattes and accessibility.
Awesome project. I wish you lots of luck. ♥
Good luck with the project. This is very thoughtful of you.
Sounds like you'll want to go with strong contrasting colors then. I wish you the best with this noble undertaking :)
Wonderful project! My husband has low vision although he seems to see colour clearly he likes to name colours after vegetables. ie Have you seen my broccoli socks? Funny guy. Good luck with this project, bravo!
great project, thanks!
Sounds cool, best of luck for further on.

Themeleon in tools has not been working fully for a few year. I have mentioned this several times here and by email. It would be great if you could fix it. I have tried this on several PCs and none work. The four buttons between the Layout/Palettes and the Patterns are not working. So it is impossible to recolour the patterns shown using popular palettes. They are not interacting.

The buttons not working are
'Undo'
'Shuffle Layout colours'
'Apply Layout cols. to background Cols'
'Apply background cols. to layout cols.'

hope you can fix this please as it is a handy tool.. Thank you

Hi TieArt!

Thank you for letting us know about this problem. Unfortunately, we won't be able to fix Themeleon as Twitter made some changes on their end that make it impossible for us to implement it again. We're sad about it too.
