Color blindness limits people from viewing true colors with their naked eyes. A color blind person faces various challenges in everyday life, be it from identifying the different traffic lights, choosing clothes, or using color dyes for concoction. A color blind person face problems to distinguish the right color in such cases. Similarly, colorblind struggles to find a software application suited to overcome their color impairment. Usually applications provide a particular feature that tends to provide a solution for a type of color blindness that might not be suitable for people having different types of color blindness. In this paper, we proposed a model which highlights mandatory features that software developers should keep in mind while developing color blind applications. This model will facilitate developers to address challenges faced by color blind by incorporating proposed features.
