App Helps The Blind & Visually Impaired Identify Colors

Thursday, October 13th, 2016 by | Filed Under: Uncategorized

Being able to tell what color something is can be an important part of life. Obviously, if you’re blind, you can’t see colors, but there are other visual impairments that make it difficult to identify colors as well.

But if you have an Android or iPhone smartphone, I’ve found a great, free app that can help you out. It’s called Color ID and you can find it right there in the app store for your phone.

It works by using the camera on your phone.


The app can be set to give very descriptive names for colors or set for a more simple mode that just gives basic colors. The color will display on the screen and your phone will read the color to you.


The app will even give you the specific hex value of the color so that you have the necessary information to duplicate the color.


So, it can really be a fun tool even for those without a visual impairment.


You can choose to save the image for future reference.


Best of all, this app is absolutely free. Check it out today in the Android or Apple App store.

    And while we’re at it, why not talk about a free (as in free beer, but also as in freedom) entire operating system: GNU/Linux?
