Method and means to modify visible colors displayed on a display or user interface to enhance a color blind person’s experience

This idea is to modify visible colors displayed on a user interface to enhance a color blind person's experience.

The device will need to have a "learn mode" that it can use to learn a specific user. It can achieve this by putting various colors on the display and asking the user to describe them. In this fashion, it will learn what type of color blindness the person has.

Once it has learned a specific user, it can apply a color scaling to try and create differentiation depending on which colors the user can see and cannot see. See Example A, a modification from normal to a protanope type of colored blindness using green scaling.

Example A

In this fashion, this method and means can be used to enhance a color blind person’s capability to distinguish certain patterns and enhance their experience. The display can be adaptive to select between multiple color blind types and normal types via a simple selection means via either face recognition or keypad/display entry.

It's further possible that by using grey scaling that the current drain can be reduced.
