In America, quite possibly, sinse American money is irritatingly all the same colour and design (or it was when I was lastt over there), only the numbers on the notes are different.

Interestingly enough though, the colour change program probably would work to an extent with English notes sinse they do at least have patches of different colour (how I tell them apart myself), though of course the colours can often be faded.


Beware the Grue!

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.
