Now you can make the environment sound! By using the camera of your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, you can scan your surroundings and ColorSay will make the colors audible to you.

ColorSay calls the colors by name!

Set up one of five color sets for speech output, and ColorSay will announce the name of the closest known color. ColorSay identifies the color names in English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Turkish, Russian, Chinese and Japanese.

ColorSay converts colors into tones!

Choose between different sound modes for sonochromatic reproduction of the color impressions. The dominant colors of an image will be interpreted as tones in real-time, which will enable you to identify the individual color families acoustically.

ColorSay is optimized to use the iOS accessibility features including VoiceOver, but does not rely on these in order to work without limitations.

ColorSay is a color scanner and suitable for blind users, people with color blindness, defective color vision, red-green blindness, blue-yellow blindness, color vision deficiency, achromatopsia, achromasia, dyschromatopsia, protanopia (red blindness), deuteranopia (green blindness), tritanopia (blue blindness), monochromaticity ...

... and it’s for everyone who would like to rediscover the world of colors!

Better than the rest

ColorSay is a nicely designed and well thought out app. I've tried many of the other color identifying apps, and I found this one to be the most accurate, the easiest to control, and have the most useful settings. Don't expect perfection from any of these types of apps, however. It's a tough job. Good lighting really helps.

I very much like how ColorSay allows you to adjust the sample size so easily.

I found the "All" Color Set to be the best choice for my needs.

I hope this app stays current and is improved over time. It's extremely helpful. Well done.

The best I can find

As a blind person it is great to be able to identify color. This app works better than any of the others I've tried. A few tips here.1 good natural lighting is critical
2 set the scan area to minimum setting of about 16%
3 hold the camera about 6 inches from the target
