Color blindness & creative solutions

Options

After the recent Domo XCanva Challenge, I am a bit more aware of when I am coloring outside the lines in producing a result. I just created a blank brick for a large table (simulated here in smaller version screenshots) that includes rankings on several columns. The request includes heat mapping on the columns. Since this is in a Domo brick, I produced my own heat rank.

Then I realized I had not accounted for people with color blindness. So I added functionality - a checkbox in the bottom corner. When checked, my table changes the colored heat map column backgrounds to white and displays black and white patterns for people who can't distinguish color.

Then I started wondering what creative solutions the rest of you might be implementing.

    Thanks @david_cunningham. It's something we should all be doing. And in most cases - legally required.
