About this app

A lot of information in everyday life requires that you be able to determine colors and assign them correctly. Some people can't do this because they can't see or distinguish all colors. This color vision deficiency ranges from seeing fewer colors than most people to not seeing any colors at all. Not seeing colors, i.e. true color blindness, is very rare. The most common form of color vision deficiency is the inability to distinguish between the colors red and green, i.e. red-green blindness.

Being able to determine the name of a color and therefore the color itself can be very helpful for people with color vision deficiency and that is exactly what the app does.

The app determines the name of a color using the color information of a photo or the setting of a color slider. It can be of help for people who cannot see and name all colors (color blindness, daltonism).

Take a picture of the object of which you want to know the color and open it in the app. Touch the object and the matching color name will be determined and displayed. Any photo can be used to identify the name of a color. Or use color sliders for red, green, and blue to create or try out colors. For each color you select in the color slider, the color name is determined and displayed.

The default settings of the app are opened with the gray icon at the bottom left. Here you can find the options Adopt result, Color values and Measuring area. Adopt result means the determined color value is adopted in the color slider. If this option is switched off, the last saved value is used in the color slider. With the Color values option, you can display the color values for red, green and blue in addition to the determined color name. For small displays it is better to switch off this option. Measuring area controls the number of pixels used to calculate the color name. The medium setting 5 x 5 often gives a good result. You can activate the color slider for red, green and blue with the result color field at the top left.

The zoom mode can be activated with the magnifying glass icon at the bottom menu. If the color of which you want to know the name is covered by parts of the menu, you can hide all control elements. To do this, touch the close icon at the bottom right.

The naming of colors is a complex process that is influenced by general and individual color perception, experience and the current lighting situation. For this reason, a percentage value is calculated for each color name, which indicates how reliable the result is.

The app does not collect, store or transmit any personal data. The app is intended as an aid for colorblind people. The app is not suitable for a medical examination. Liability for the correctness of all color names determined with the app is not accepted.
