I was very excited when I found out that the iPhone had added a series of “color filters” to assist color blind users.
I am a deutan (green-weak red-green colorblind), the most common type of colorblindness. So I turned on the deutan filter. I don’t know what I expected, but I guess I would be able to see a broader range of greens and browns and pinks, which give me the most trouble.
But when I turn on the filter, what I see is just “off.” A lot of the colors seem to have faded out instead of intensified.
And my wallpaper of colorful delicious sushi looks unappetizing now.
What is the color filter supposed to be doing?
