RE: Accessibilty module for colorblind people

Hi all,

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this thread.  I believe these filters
would fit in perfectly with the gnome-mag.  Create a great front end
wizard/gui of some sort and your going to open the doors to some new
assistive technology features.  Great ideas!

Hi Henrik:

<"What he said" >

You and Carlos put this very well.  I agree with you both that this 
sounds like a great thing to add to gnome-mag.

By the way, Carlos has recently done some very nice work to enable 
fullscreen magnification without requiring two X screens, so based on 
this new work (still in bugzilla, but soon to be in cvs we hope), this 
could be done pretty elegantly at "1:1" without noticeably changing the 
user experience.

Best regards


p.s. - gnome-mag magnifies at '1x' if you run it with "-z1".  To use 
this in fullscreen mode without changing your Xorg.conf will require 
Carlos' patch to
