High School Student’s Google Chrome Extension Aids Color Blind Users
ReColor will automatically adjust digital content colors to make viewing more accessible.
Roughly 7% of the world’s population is color-blind. New research from 17-year-old Animesh Tripathi is looking to make digital viewing more accessible for these individuals.
Tripathi is high school student from New Delhi, India, and he is developing a Google Chrome extension that will automatically adjust colors to compensate for color blindness based on the user’s settings. Called ReColor, the software would optimize videos, images, and other visual content using image-processing algorithms.
