A Color Blindness Test For Printers
This is a color blindness test. Though these pictures can tell you if you suffer
from color blindness, it should not replace an actual diagnosis by purchasing the
real Ishihara Color Blindness Test which consists of several plates that diagnose
various forms of color blindness. Color blindness doesn't necessarily
mean only seeing black and white. I don't profess to know all different types, but
there are some that are more subtle to discover than others. Here are some different
types: * Monochromacy - total color blindness * Dichromacy - one
of the three basic color mechanisms is malfunctioning * Anomalous Trichromacy
- when colors are seen, but matched differently by the brain Of these
three color deficiencies, 10 percent of the male population and 1 percent of the
female population either inherit or acquire in their lifetime. I'll now
go back to the example in the beginning. It was just a matter of time before someone
like this came along. I have worked with a few women before in the press room, but
by and large most were men. If ten percent of all those who have come through have
a color deficiency, then sooner or later it was bound to happen. The lesson: I had
better be more preemptive. So needless to say, all who
enter my press room, must take the Ishihara Color Blindness Test. It is simple to
give and saves a lot of investment from the employer side as well as employee. There
are other tests that can be purchased for around $800, but I highly recommend purchasing
the Ishihara plates for this purpose. However, here is a simple test online
that will help you. It is not meant as a diagnostic test, but can serve as a quick
reference. Proper diagnosis should be done by a professional. Here goes.
Make sure anyone in your press room has perfect color perception.
If they don't, there's little future for them. Save yourself and the pressman the
time by doing the test right from the start. You can buy the Ishihara's Test for
Colour-Blindness (concise edition)ishihara test and keep it handy to test new employees.
This way you will know if they have a future.
