A multi-functional video converter.

Vision allows people with different kinds of color blindness (colour vision deficiency) to see more colors. People with various types of colour deficiency could benefit from the use of Vision software including those affected by Tritanopia (blue colour vision deficiency), Deuteranopia (green), Protanopia (red). Daltonization algorithms used in Vision utilize confusion lines to compensate for color blindness. This is accomplished by shifting colors away from confusion lines towards colors visible to the colorblind individual. Vision applies real time screen daltonization processes, which is one of the most prominent features setting it apart from any other similar developments.

i suspect this prog to do nothing for color-blind people to see more. It merely changes shades (makes colors more contrast or something like this)

Like some others here this software does not work for me. With the program installed and activated the sliders work but make no perceptible difference to any of the colours displayed.

I know I have a marginal colour blindness condition and thought this would be useful but, for me, it does nothing at all and I'm using Windows 7 64-bit and my graphics card is GT730.

If the developer would care to help I would be most grateful.

In addition to my previous comment, I wanted to mention that on my laptop with 3840x2160 high-res display, the dialog/settings boxes were too small for the text being displayed (and the text fonts, while not super tiny as with some non-compliant apps, were also disproportionately small, yet too big for the boxes) such that I could not read them entirely nor see all the controls/buttons which were out of view. Had I not already seen Vision on another computer with a lower-res display (and known in advance what to expect) I would likely have not been able to use and appreciate it on the high-res machine.

My graphics drivers (Intel & nVidia) are up to date when I checked today (unless there are still lingering issues between Windows 10 (recent Creator's update) and those drivers on this model/brand notebook, but I wouldn't know).

Again, thanks for today's offer!

I have been visiting this site for a few years now. I don't usually leave feed back as I don't feel the need to with so many others. I really miss the feedback from Giovanni among others. Hope all is well with everyone. That being said,This is by far one of the most useful programs in a long time for me. I have red/green color blindness and those enchroma glasses are too expensive. This program installed fine on Win 10. Easy to setup and register. My stock background is much more beautiful than I thought. Thank you so much and keep up the good work. I will probably be purchasing this to help will development.

I am eager for this to help and willing to test it out. I will mention that the setting and setup interface could be larger, some of us colorblind also have other vision problems. A larger font( or a choice of such) would be very helpful.

I wonder if this application, Vision, is also a terrible memory hog, like this developer's Iris app, which has also been featured on GotD. The latter leaks memory like a jaded voter, and ends up consuming as much memory as a browsing with many tabs open, and has to be manually restarted frequently to clear it. (I like Iris, btw, and will certainly try out Vision; but there is clearly a major bug, for a tiny, single-focus app to be so leaky.)

A respectable idea, but sadly on my system with Vista SP2 and Nvidia 8400M graphics chipset it does not change anything, after activating the pro license the settings sliders operate but make no changes to the display at all. no built in help, no "spells". To the vendor/developer please come back when you get to at least a release Version of 1 or better that actually work on all video modes on all video hardware.

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

TK, you're using an operating system and graphics processor that are both ELEVEN years old. Why on earth would software developers be trying to create applications that work on systems that old??

Reply   |   Comment by Trixie  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

TK,
Windows Vista and Windows XP are not supported.

The reason for this is that the algorithms we use for the real time daltonization are just not possible in version prior to Windows 7

Requirements: Windows 7 or later. Windows Vista and Windows XP are not supported.

I'm really sorry that we dissappointed you.

TK,

No doubt that, upon first launch, you saw the initial SETUP window where you first have to pick one of three types of "color blindness" based upon how hard it is to distinguish the letters on various colored backgrounds.

Following that choice, only then will the sliders begin to work to affect/alter COLOR ADJUSTMENT and SEVERITY; otherwise they will not. (Perhaps it still doesn't work on your system in any case.)

What struck me as somewhat odd (first impression) was that, in the right-click menu on the tray icon, the SETTINGS are listed first, and the SETUP second. If Vision was not already set to one of the three types of color-blindness, and you initially played with the SETTINGS sliders (as the first option in the menu) expecting to see something happen, it won't.

Also I noticed that if you have a color-blindness choice already established, and simply open SETUP then close it again without making a choice, then Vision reverts to making no changes at all (and the SETTINGS sliders once again will do nothing).

It seems to me that SETTINGS should display a warning that no choice is made in SETUP; and perhaps the sliders should also be greyed-out and non-functional for clarity sake.

Also, I know I would like an ENABLE/DISABLE (or A/B or OFF/ON) option in the menu so I would not have to repeatedly go to SETUP, make my choice once again, then readjust the SETTINGS sliders to the same values in order to compare the helpfulness of enabling the Vision effect on various web pages (and perhaps also an assignable hot-key combo to easily toggle the effect without accessing the taskbar icon Vision menu to do so).

I will say that I was able to find a setting that enabled me to pass every Ishihara color-blindness test plate (as listed on this page, anyway) for the first time in my life! I have always been stumped and frustrated by these.

http://www.colour-blindness.com/colour-blindness-tests/ishihara-colour-test-plates/

However, the shifted color settings I chose that allowed me to distinguish/perceive the "hidden" figures in the test plates -- while great for, say, improving the functional interpretation of maps and their legends, graphs, pie charts, and other "data presentation" stuff -- made otherwise normal-looking colored photos of people and places look way off-color and weird/unnatural (to me). That's why I would like an easier way to toggle the effect on and off without the cumbersome steps needed to restore the settings each time.

Also I would like to see a "START WITH WINDOWS" (or not) option. It seems that as it is currently implemented it launches every time I first log into my account (with the altered effects enabled). That makes all my desktop wallpaper and other photos look weird by default.

So thanks for the useful tool for us "minorities" -- I'm looking forward to improvements soon!

TK, I don't know of very many software developers who are still making software for Vista on such old hardware. Maybe it's time for you to upgrade?

Doesn't work on my PC either.

Moving the "Color Adjustment" & "Severity" sliders causes no change to the display.

Brian H., just because you don't know of very many software developers still making software for vista on such old hardware does not mean they are not... most giveaways have zero problems on my system specs. If you would like to donate a new system I'll consider running it alongside my system but to spend a thousand or more GBP/USD to buy a competing modern system just to run maybe 1 in 20 giveaways that don't support my system seems a little foolish to me.

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

Musterfox, hmm maybe they have a problem interfacing with NVIDIA chipsets? On my NVIDIA control panel there is an existing control that I suspect would perform very similar to daltonization, in adjust desktop colour settings, Apply following enhancements.
Digital Vibrance and Hue. I suspect the Hue control can be used to massage contrasting colours for some if not all the variants of colour blindness.

Daniel Georgiev, not having seen the specs at the time of testing and posting I have seen them now, if what you say is true, then why do others using windows 7 experience no-effect using the settings sliders? see https://www.giveawayoftheday.com/vision-pro-0-0-5/#comment-545900

Also why do you not check windows version on setup initialisation and warn that it will not work on versions of windows prior to Windows 7 (any specific Service pack) and refuse to install, and IF windows Vista SP2 truely lacks the necesary API to perform realtime daltonization why don't we get any error alerts as the program tries to do its job instead of failing silently... also why do you not present a prominant system requirements anouncment on your website?

My 8 year old system has a practical equivilent to crude daltonization (hue slider) built into the GPU hardware driver, if that could do it back then that it can't be that difficult!

Trixie, would be by any chance the type of person that exaggerates numbers to try and make an invalid statement appear plausable?

Vista SP2 release date was May 26, 2009 my system was purchassed new in 2009. There are no XP drivers for much of the hardware on my system.

Now if you are claiming the OS is eleven years old because Vista RTM was released in November 2006 then you are using loose historical ancestory as the age decider in which case why are you using s system whose operating system is ancestorally older than 20 years old since yours has code from the oldest versions of Windows NT still in it! including inherrant bugs and security flaws still being patched to this day as well as new bugs and security threats exposed by new badly planned and implimented code?

The VAST majority of programs developped today are capable of operating under XP and Vista, developers do not need to TRY to create applications that work on old systems as the vast majority of desktop applications will work just fine under XP SP3 and Vista SP2 unless the developer enables specific compile time error tracking features that have had to be built into the newer versions of windows to compensate for lazy developer practices!

For those who have some color blindness, this modifies the display to assist you in seeing the full color array. To determine if you need this, install, and take the 10-second test as the program comes up. You'll know immediately if you need this program to see the entire color spectrum.

Hi Dixie,
Vision can be used on PCs, smartphones and many other digital devices, including for gaming and entertainment. Vision applies real time screen daltonization processes, which is one of the most prominent features setting it apart from any other similar developments. The idea of Vision is that different colours that look identical to a person with colour vision deficiency are shifted in “opposite” directions so that they can distinguish them. In reality it’s supposed to help us distinguish the colours we can’t see using the colours we still can.

An interesting offering today. Like 1 in 12 men, I have a mild red/green colour blindness. It doesn't mean I drive through red traffic lights - only that there is one shade of orangy-red that my eyes/brain perceive as the same as a similar intensity of green. Doesn't cause any real-world problems. This program is certainly effective: the test page it opens with becomes much clearer when it's working. The drawback is that icons which used to appear bright red now seem (ironically) to be the same orange-red which I thought was where the problem area was. I don't know whether other users of my PCs will object.
Of course, everybody's perception is different, so you may find this is not your experience. Well worth a try. I've installed it on 4 machines, though I have to say my Win 10 pro 64-bit desktop is rejecting it for some reason.
Oh, by the way, ignore the claim that this will allow the colour-blind to see more colours! That would be beyond the scope of a software app. Harry Potter or (reputedly) an LSD trip might do it.

HenryB again. Win 10 accepted it on second try. To activate the registration is a bit awkward - find the icon on the botton right of the screen (may be hidden), right-click and find the Activate option.

Explain how color blindness, which is caused by a lack of cones that are sensitive to one or more of the three primary colors, can be solved by an algorithm. This makes no sense.

Glen C, by remapping/shifting portions of the deficient colour range to parts of the colour range the effected person can SEE the affected person can percieve more colours in the given artificially coloured scene, whether this will be astheticly pleasing or enable the affected person to become more functional is down to the individual and their own perceptions and the particular coloured scene. I personally don't need this type of compensation but I expect to download it today if I can get the download option to work in IE 9.

In my case I don't have any colour defficiencies but can tell if the program remaps colours and on my system here it does not! You think I should not comment? Sorry but surely people who are not commenting on this offereing at all but just presenting a blinkered opinion about who should post comments about todays offereing and who should not, should not be commenting at all, as that is not what giveawayoftheday.com ask the comments to be about, in the first place!
