It is not uncommon for some of us to have sight related problems like color blindness. If you have some sort of color problem in your eyes, then you can configure your Android Lollipop device to show the screen colors after making some adjustments so that you do not find any difficulty in reading what is displayed on the screen. There are three main types of color blindness – deuteranomaly (red-green), protanomaly (red-green) and tritanomaly (blue-yellow) – Android Lollipop covers them all. If you want to adjust the screen colors to adapt to someone’s color blindness type, then you can follow these simple instructions:
- On the home screen, touch the menu button (near the lower-left corner of the screen) and then select Settings to open Android Settings.
- On the Android settings screen, choose Accessibility from under the System category.
- On the Accessibility options screen, scroll down to the very bottom and select Color Correction.
- Touch the toggle switch to turn the Color Correction feature ON. After this you can select one of the three color correction modes – deuteranomaly (red-green), protanomaly (red-green) and tritanomaly (blue-yellow). As soon as you select these modes, the screen colors change to adapt to suit your special needs.
Conclusion: Android Lollipop can be configured to display screen colors to adapt to the special needs of the color blind. It can adjust the screen color display to suit the three types of color blindness – deuteranomaly, protanomaly and tritanomaly.
