Assistive technologies for color blind students

Sometimes you create aesthetically appealing presentations only to discover that some students are unable to read them. Perhaps you have color blind students and are unsure how to proceed in the development of your presentations to make them easily readable for everyone.

  • As an instructor, it is important to be cognizant of the facts on color blindness.
  • There are tips and tricks you can learn in order to prepare lessons that are inclusive of color blind students.
  • One way to ensure that your presentations are inclusive is to export your presentation into images, one for each slide. You can then test your images on this color blind simulator to see how different color blind individuals can view it.
  • In addition, you can also share the famous Ishihara color blindness test with your students’ parents if they wish to assess their own child to see if they are red-green color blind (the most common type of color blindness).
  • If you would like more detailed information on color blindness you can check the color blindness e-book.
