Although we at TCV know a lot about color vision, we know it would be ignorant to say that we know everything about color vision. This page is dedicated to websites that we have found that complement our vision of helping spread the awareness about color vision deficiencies. A link to each website will be posted and then a short synopsis about the site will be given. Most of the sites will pertain to the subject of color vision only but there may be a select few not related to color vision but that we thought were interesting and wanted to pass on. If you ever find a site or have developed a site that you feel would complement TestingColorVision.com, please contact us through our contact page.
Color Blindness (www.Colblindor.com)
Colblindor was developed by a gentleman named Daniel Flueck who was born colorblind. Daniel constantly updates the site with information pertaining to the color vision field. Daniel keeps people informed about current studies about color vision, interesting applications developed for colorblind people, and gives a unique and credible point of view of all things color vision related. He has definitely developed a great site that complements our vision of spreading awareness about color vision deficiencies. Daniel has also written a very informative ebook, which can be downloaded here: Color Blind Essential.
Color Vision Powerpoint by Dr. Rabin
Dr. Rabin developed this excellent PowerPoint presentation that describes color vision deficiencies. We would like to forewarn you that it is a very technical presentation and was created for a scientific audience. We highly recommend viewing this presentation if you are doing research on color vision deficiencies for college or graduate school. Dr. Rabin brings his expertise to the field by acquiring his Optometric Doctorate (O.D.) and Ph.D. He created this presentation when he was the Chief of the Visual Function Laboratory Ophthalmology Branch for the United States Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine.
No Such Thing As Color (http://www.nosuchthingascolor.com/)
This short video was developed by Laura Evans. It is about a gentleman with colorblindness and how it has effected his life. It is a very interesting video and I highly recommend watching it. Although it is a great video, I want to remind you that this is one person's opinion about being colorblind. As someone with a color vision deficiency, I agree with a majority of his opinions but I did disagree with others. The gentleman mentioned that being colorblind sometimes made him feel dumb. This was true when I did not know that I was colorblind. When I discovered I was colorblind, I actually felt special because I got to see the world different than the average person. If you have 9 minutes to spare, I definitely recommend taking the time to watch this video. It was put together very well.
WhatColor Application (http://www.hikarun.com/e/)
This application was developed to help people with color vision deficiencies. The users can point their cursor anywhere on their computer and WhatColor tells the user what color it is. This is a very helpful tool if you have to do anything for work or school.
Websites to a Colorblind Person (http://colorfilter.wickline.org/)
This website is very unique and allows people to type in the URL of any website and see what it looks like to someone with a color vision deficiency. We highly recommend this to web developers but at the same time we also feel that most people would find this interesting.
