My wife (who will be joining the forum soon) 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.
