Description Jussi Kukkonen (reporter) 2006-01-21 17:49:29 UTC
I'm slightly red-green color blind and have trouble with distinguishing the 
color of some marbles in the game -- especially in the 'target arrangement' 
on the right.

I can try and identify the difficult ones, but I'm sure someone in the 770 
team is color blind too...

Claiming ownership.

This doesn't need any code changes, just modifying the Marbles images.
However, I wonder what else in the device is non-optimal for color-blind
people.  Maybe there should be some metabug about theme, icons and game gfx
for the color-blind...

bug 755 covers chess being bad for color blind people. I'm likely to create an
accessibility or sec508 keyword when I'm done reorganizing bugs.maemo.org
Comment 7 Eero Tamminen nokia 2008-11-24 16:59:33 UTC
This would require replacing just the device
/usr/games/lmarbles/gfx/marbles.jpg image I guess.  Maybe somebody could
recolor it or apply some pattern to it and attach here a replacement for people
who need the balls to differ more?

I will check this one with the usability guys.
Comment 9 Quim Gil nokia 2008-12-02 08:06:54 UTC
Bug 755 is related to this one. Same problem in Chess.

We are porting the Marbles application for Fremantle without introducing any
changes on functionality or look&feel. 

However, let me know if someone is interested contributing a graphics set
solving this issue.

Let me resolve this as FIXED in Harmattan.

If someone contributes a graphics set for Fremantle we might consider its
