Nice idea. I am testing it out right now. And as far as I have tested it,
it works great. And, it is free! That is cool.

Subject: [Audyssey] Color idenfitying program
> My wife and I were talking and we came up with a fun little idea. For all
of you severely Vi/blind guys who have a webcam, or a laptop with a
webcam mounted on it, this is a small program for identifying colors.
Lets say you are picking out clothes to wear. You hold the shirt in front
of the laptop (or camera), press the Space bar, and a voice tells you
what color it is as well as the next 2 most likely colors. I say "most
likely" because webcam settings, room lighting, and even the types of
light bulbs in the room can tint objects and offset the color a little.
>From my testing at home, it is pretty accurate. I was just wondering if
something like this would be useful.
> If anyone wants to give it a try, here it is. Press Space bar to check a
color and press Escape to end the program. As a tip, hold the item close
to the camera lens before you press the Space bar, and keep it there
until the color is spoken. It works best this way.
