ReadyAPI includes a number of options that make the product easier to use for anyone who has difficulty seeing the screen.

Color Perception Assistance

ReadyAPI includes a setting that helps users with red-green color blindness (deuteranopia) enhance their experience with the product. The option activates special UI mode, in which ReadyAPI uses more deuteranopia-friendly colors in icons, panels and progress bars, helping users to determine the current state of the test, whether the test run was successful, and so on.

To enable this mode:

  1. Open the  Preferences > UI dialog.

  2. Select the Color blind mode check box and click OK to save changes:

    ReadyAPI Preferences: The UI tab
