When creating your new PowerPoint presentation, have you ever thought that almost 10% of your audience may not see your slides the same way you do?  Have you ever thought of the number of color blind individuals in your audience?

Facts About Color Blindness | National Eye Institute

As many as 8 percent of men and 0.5 percent of women with Northern European ancestry have the common form of red-green color blindness. Men are much more likely to be colorblind than women because the genes responsible for the most common, inherited color blindness are on the X chromosome.
