    I suppose this fits with "Technical Challenges". Here's a neat online test to check your color vision and find out where you may be having problems:

    Munsell Hue Test

    It probably also helps determine if you're working from a monitor that allows differences subtle enough for you to make them out.

    If nothing else, it's interesting.

    I managed to score a perfect 0. :thumbup:;)

    Very interesting.. I'll have to try this out at my home workstation when I have more time. Looking at that just made me realize just how bad my display on my netbook really is (in the light I am currently in). I can't see a difference in many of the boxes to determine their order.

    8 for me. The green to purple (line 3) being the hardest to figure out. They all looked the same to me.

    Wow. I just scored a 62. I got the blues hosed up.

    Thanks for sharing, homey (I am from "Up North" too).

    ahh, I remember seeing this posted quite a while ago... it definitely helps to have a good monitor and good lighting.

    My work monitor gets a 9. Is this an accurate test to see if you monitor is calibrated? Thanks for sharing.

    No not really because you may have a perfectly calibrated monitor but have crap colour vision. I think people such as myself are blaming their crap colour vision on their monitors :lmao:. However a well calibrated monitor will make the job easier.
