Figma is a powerful design tool that enables designers to create prototypes, mockups and designs for websites and mobile applications. However, designing for people with color vision deficiencies can be challenging.
That’s where Color Blind Plugin comes in. This plugin is designed to help designers create accessible designs for people with color blindness.
Color Blind Plugin is an add-on for Figma that helps designers see their designs through the eyes of someone with a color vision deficiency. It allows designers to simulate how their work will look like to users with different types of color blindness, including protanopia, deuteranopia, tritanopia and monochromacy. The plugin also includes an accessibility checker which makes sure the design meets WCAG standards for color contrast ratio.
Using Color Blind Plugin in Figma is simple and straightforward. To activate the plugin, simply select it from the plugins menu on the left side of the Figma interface.
Once activated, a new panel will appear showing you all of the different types of color blindness simulations available. All you have to do is select the type of simulation you want and click “apply” to see how your design looks for someone with that type of color vision deficiency.
Color Blind Plugin can be used in several ways:
- To preview a design from multiple perspectives
- To check if a design meets WCAG standards
- To ensure accessibility for people with different types of color blindness
Using Color Blind Plugin in Figma is an easy way to make sure your designs are accessible and usable by everyone regardless of their color vision abilities.
