Microsoft Tool Helps Developers Create Programs Viewable by the Visually Impaired

Microsoft’s Innovation Labs in Israel has made available for download a technical preview of Digital Lens, a tool for developers interested in making their applications viewable by those with certain vision impairments.

Digital Lens emulates conditions like color blindness and blurry vision, enabling designers and developers to identify potential user-interface issues and fix them before they release their applications.

The tool is available for 32-bit Windows 7 only. Digital Lens also requires users to have an Aero Theme enabled in order to work correctly.
