Hi,

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.
