Color Blindness Matrices
// JSON of 3x3 matrices which transform RGB colors into colorspace which
// simulate the imparement of various color blindness deficiency.
//
// Used by Coblis: http://www.color-blindness.com/Coblis-color-blindness-simulator/
//
// The original website posting the matrices has been taken down:
// http://www.colorjack.com/labs/colormatrix/
//
// RGB transform matrices generated by Michael of www.colorjack.com
// Which were created using code by Matthew Wickline and the
// Human-Computer Interaction Resource Network ( http://hcirn.com/ )
//
// The original matrices were 5x5, for full homogeneous coordinates of RGBA
// They have been similified here to 3x3 matrices, because the additional
// dimensions were simple identity.
//
// These are very inaccurate so consider other methods. See comments on this gist.

Thank you for providing these matrices. It makes me possible to create a html-js for selecting a color blind friendly color set. A power point file should be color blind friendly, yes absolutely. But, we have other problems.

  1. If we know that there are only normal and D-type, shall we consider about T-type?
  2. We have pre-selected color sets those are provided by several professors. Even though a student wants to change, he/she can not. They don't have enough knowledge.

I write a html-js for my studens.

I removed all the Japanese sentences. It just explains how to use and something so on. You can see the Japanese version <a href="https://docs.0machi.com/CBF.html">here</a>. I included the link to this page in the HTML.
