Android 15 to Allow Colour Blind Users To Control Intensity of Colour Correction

Android 15 may bring support for an intensity slider in colour correction settings that could help colour blind users in their usage experience.

Manufacturers have been working on making their products widely accessible with the help of features that can support users who have any disabilities. Google, being one such manufacturer, is planning to add support for customisable colour correction ability in Android 15 via an intensity slider in its accessibility settings for those who are colour blind.

As spotted by Mishaal Rahman (via Android Authority), Android 15 could be expanding colour correction settings by adding an intensity slider. While this slider is not available yet in the latest Android 15 Beta 3.1 release, Rahman was able to enable it manually. The slider will have three values, ranging from low, medium, to high, that tweak the intensity of the colour balance changes for each colour correction mode, which includes the likes of deuteranomaly, protanomaly, tritanomaly, or monochromacy.

As shown in the screenshots shared by the publication, the hue of each colour is drastically affected by the intensity slider. “This slider, thus, could help compensate for varying degrees of deuteranomaly, protanomaly, or tritanomaly,” reads the report.

The change will help colour blind users adjust the colour correction settings as per their own preferences, depending on how it affects their usage experience.

In news related to Google, the company is going to hold a new launch event on August 13 where it will be unveiling its next generation of smartphones. Pixel 9 series will include three smartphones this year, including the Pixel 9 Pro XL, Pixel 9 Pro, and the Pixel 9, as per leaks. All three devices will have a similar design.

The whole camera bar is now pill-shaped, compared to rectangular on the Pixel 8 Pro, with only the camera cutout inside it having the pill shape. The devices may also get an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor under the display.
