View source: R/deficit.R

Description

Function to convert any palette to one that illustrates how it would appear to a person with a color deficit.

Usage

1
colorDeficit(rgb, target = c("deuteranope", "protanope", "tritanope"))

Arguments

rgb

A color palette. Accepts hexademical representations, sRGB class objects from the colorspace package, or three-column sRGB matrices.

target

The kind of color deficit to simulate.

Details

This function converts normal-vision color palettes into simulations that represent what is likely to be seen with one of the three kinds of color deficits. Deuteranopes are red-blind, which is the most common form of color deficit leading to an inability to distinguish red and green. Protanopes are green-blind; this is the second most common form of color-blindness and also leads to an inability to distinguish red and green. Tritanopes are blue blind; this is the rarest form of color blindness and leads to an inability to distinguish blue and yellow.

Value

Returns a color palette in the same form as its input argument.
