New Colorblind Support in WoW Patch 6.1

Posted By: Gamerdating Team - February 17, 2015

World of Warcraft patch 6.1 has revealed that you’ll find a new user interface system that we’ve designed to assist players who have common visual issues related to colorblindness.

In the new ‘Accessibility’ interface configuration section, you’ll be able to enable both text and color enhancements that may improve your visual experience while playing WoW. ‘Enable UI Colorblind Mode’ (which was previously in the Help section) is now here. These text enhancements add certain words and phrases to the tooltips throughout the game—tooltips that, by default, use different colors to indicate useful information about objects, NPCs, and other players.

The game will now have three sets of colorblind filters to choose from: protanopia, deuteranopia, and tritanopia.

It's always great to see games become accessible for all, and colorblindness is often overlooked.

Thank you Blizzard!
