Nearly 300 million people worldwide have some form of color-vision deficiency (CVD) and it's important to check that your work is accessible to all. Find out how you can ensure you are making the best efforts to be compliant.
- [Tony] Hi, and welcome to Design Tools Weekly … with me, Tony Harmer. … This week, I'd like to just briefly look at the topic of … color blindness or color vision deficiency. … That's CVD for short. … Do you ever check your work to see how someone … with a form of CVD would perceive it? … Well, maybe you should, because around 8% of males … and 1 in 200 women, have some form of color blindness … and that adds up to 300 million people worldwide. … Which is exactly the same as the population … of the United States. … You might be interested to know if you use Adobe tools, … that Illustrator and Photoshop both have view modes … which can simulate the two most common forms … of color blindness. … And that's what we're going to look at here in Illustrator. … If I go up to the View menu here, and turn on Proof Colors, … I go in to this particular view. … Now, if I go back to the View menu, … and come down to Proof Setup, you can see … I'm actually filtering for a rendering of … deuteranopic color blindness. …
