A special web browser hopes to encourage universal design solutions to create a web-based graphics interface that equitably serves all types of visual conditions.
Chrometric is a web-browser that lets you experience visually-impaired viewing – the eight types of color-blindness, loss of contrast, and poor vision. These filters simulate how potential clients may be viewing your site, so it may lead to a stronger web-design language that more people understand. Color vision deficiencies affect 8% of the male population. This application allow graphic designers to practice the principles of universal design to create a web-based graphics interface that equitably serves all types of visual conditions. It runs on Adobe AIR so Mac, PC, and Linux users can all freely download and use it.
