So, my questions are these:
1. How aware are you of color blindness?
Very much so.
2. How much do you understand about color blindness (causes, misconceptions,
Much, but from a theoretical viewpoint only. I have no friends or
family who are color blind.
3. How much of an affect and what affects do you believe color blindness has
on your audience.
About 80 percent of our audience is female (XX genes), so it is not
an important issue, but we are aware of the problem in presentation
materials, as our courseware is only in black, white, and shades of gray.
4. What steps do you take to limit the problems caused by color blindness?
We keep away from the red/green/orange color range in presentations
5. (This one is just for my own kicks and giggles) Are you or a technical
communicator you know color blind?
I do not know taupe from tan, fuchsia from fire red, or plum from
purple, according to my wife, does that count?
