Ask a Question
As someone who is cursed with color-blindness, this is a question near to my heart.
About 8% of men are color blind to some degree, while it's rare among women (well under 1%), so if you have a popular website, it will be visited every day by people who have problems with some colors. (I have trouble discerning some browns from greens and some blues from purples.)
I found a site for designers called Color Laboratory that "allows you to select colors and see how they appear next to one another, and in various foreground/background combinations." More importantly, it also allows you to "see those colors as they might appear to color-blind users."
Also, this site offers some advice to web designers trying to accommodate the color-challenged.
Thanks for thinking about us, AppDevGuy!
