Google launched a new Chrome tool that will allow developers to tune their websites for visual impairments like color blindness to help them fix accessibility issues on their sites.

♦ The developers can use this feature by launching Google Chrome.
♦ The developers can head to the browser's Developer tools. Choose More tools, then select Rendering and Emulate visual deficiencies.
♦ The emulate vision deficiencies features a drop-down menu of vision limitations.
♦ The developer should select one from the menu, such as tritanopia (a condition where a person cannot distinguish the colors blue and yellow).
♦ It would allow developers to mimic the condition, changing the colors of their site so they can see if it's difficult to read without those specific colors.
♦ Google's new developer tools follow the release of Firefox's visual disability dev tools.
