Vision Documentary To Be Color-Adapted For the Color Blind

“CHICO, Calif., Sept. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Sight: The Story of Vision, a documentary on the science, medicine and technology of human vision, narrated by Sir Elton John, is the first film to be broadcast with a color correction that is adapted for the vision of people with color blindness. Like Closed Captioning (CC) for the hearing impaired, and Video Description (VD) for low vision and the blind, the color blind accessible correction (CA) helps those with limited red-green color sensitivity better see differences between colors they normally struggle to distinguish.

“A few weeks ago, I tried a pair of EnChroma glasses designed to help with color blindness,” said Kris Koenig, the film’s writer and director. “When I looked through the glasses, greens and reds became more vibrant without degrading the rest of the visible spectrum. It got me thinking about applying color correction for the color blind to the film, like EnChroma does with its glasses.”
