Daltonization is a technique of exposing details to color-blind users, allowing them see what they otherwise would have missed.
Color vision deficiency (CVD), commonly referred to as color blindness, affects around 5% of the population (8% of males, and 0.5% of women) or one out of every twenty computer users.

Description of Options for Chrome Daltonize!:
- "Simulate" shows how images appear through the eyes of the color blind.
- "Daltonize" exposes details in images to color blind computer users, allowing them to catch details they may have otherwise missed. For instance, daltonization of an Ishihara test plate (a popular test of color-vision) allows a color-blind person to see numbers normally inaccessible to their perception.
