This site http://www.vischeck.com/index.shtml will give you more information
on color blindness as well as being able to download a tool that lets you
see how your pages would look to someone with color blindness, glaucoma, or
toher visual impairments.

Subject: Inaccessible by color blind? http://www.tryspot.com/tharapita/


Hello everybody,

I have received reports, according to which the site
http://www.tryspot.com/tharapita/ is hard to view by color-blind people.
This
really has made me concerned because I really want my sites to be accessible
by
color-blind people as well.

There have also been suggestions on reducing the contrast of the background
-- I
will forward that suggestion to the designer shortly.

What I'm interested in is how well color-blind can see the blue on gray? Any
other suggestions?

Thanks very much!

Yours,
Lauri
