Thanks Roberto -

To the larger group...I have a few thoughts about automated (especially
web-based automated) color validators such as the one Roberto and others
have found.  Personally, I think such tools are great, especially if we can
locate one that really fits our needs.  But, I think we'd need the
underlying algorithm that makes the tool work or we may be in risk of having
a particular tool "go away" for one reason or another.

If we find a tool that works with regard to analyzing color deficiency
issues would we propose that we negotiate with the tool developer to make
said tool available to us (even if we had to pay)? Sorry to ask such a
seemingly strange question.

I have tinkered with the tool Roberto mentioned and it seems to work well.

My thoughts -
