Vision is software allowing people with different kinds of color blindness (color vision deficiency) to see more colors.

Globally there are close to 300 million people who are colorblind and struggle every day. Many of them are prohibited from becoming pilots, scientists, doctors, police officers, firefighters, electricians, etc.

Approximately 20 million EU citizens suffer from varying types and severity of color vision deficiency (color blindness).

It is these people that Vision is aiming to assist, by making the world a much more colorful and better place for them.

Vision diagnoses and allows people with different kinds of color blindness to see more colors when using a digital device, making it an important assistive tool for strategic sectors like education for instance.

The Bulgarian Ministry of Education has already adopted this tool at an institutional level and made it available on all school computers in Bulgaria, in addition, a strategic partnership agreement was signed between Vision Technology and the Bulgarian Ministry of Education in December 2017.

The team behind Vision Technology were also special guest speakers at “THE ROLE OF SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP IN SUPPORTING LOCAL COMMUNITIES” roundtable hosted by the Bulgarian MEP Momchil Nekov (S&D, CULT) in the European Parliament in Brussels in late November 2017.

Should you wish to discuss further how your country could do more to improve the quality of life and increase accessibility for its colorblind citizens – please do not hesitate to contact the team at Vision Technology and discuss the various opportunities available.

Indeed aiming to improve quality of life and increase accessibility is at the core of what “Vision” does.

Color Blindness

Colour blind individuals experience multiple obstacles in their everyday life, many of which are hard to imagine for people with normal color vision.

They can face issues even with simple and routine tasks such as selecting and preparing food, gardening, doing sports, driving or choosing clothes.

A great number of activities undertaken via digital devices can also turn out to be problematic for people with color vision deficiency – the color background or text font of many websites can make reading the text and comprehending the information almost impossible; filling in and completing interactive forms on the internet can also be potentially problematic.

In addition to the activities causing difficulty, we could add working with documents with color graphic elements and design, understanding certain video clips and graphs, the correct choice of colors for presentations and other documents, etc.

The biggest issue, however, is in schools and for the students with color vision deficiency.

As most teachers have never been given any training in how to identify and support color blind students, teachers may not be aware that statistically speaking, there will be at least one color blind child in every classroom and the proportion will be much higher in all-boys schools.

Should you wish to discuss further how your country could do more to improve the quality of life and increase accessibility for its colorblind citizens – please do not hesitate to contact the team at Vision Technology and discuss the various opportunities available.
