Colorblind People, can they really read your web site?
(Page 1 of 3 )
I once created a notepad-like editor. It is possible with this editor to write Russian text on a western Windows without using a Cyrillic keyboard in front of your computer.
This software is equipped with an on screen Russian keyboard which is situated under the text field of the notepad like editor. The keys on the screen based keyboard is displayed with both Latin and Cyrillic characters. The Cyrillic characters are displayed in red and the Latin are displayed in Black.
One day, I got an angry e-mail from one users of the product.
Donít you know that ďso and soĒ many people have one form or another of colorblindness. I canít read the Russian character in the keyboard. Could you change the color of the letters?
At that time I used a bright red color for the Russian characters and the keys were in gray.
I have since of course changed the color. Now I use a more darker red color to represent the Russian letters.
I myself donít suffer from this problem, but I while ago I surfed around on the Internet and found a cool website that is all about colorblindness and remembered the e-mail and the adjustment I had to made to the Russian editor.
