Google Chrome has a feature for simulating visual impairment. It allows you to turn a page into an image that people with color blindness and blurred vision see – and will help developers adjust page settings for people with such disabilities.
Some sites are able to adapt the page to the needs of people with visual impairments: for example, increase the font, there is a user who sees poorly, change the color scheme on the page and make it brighter or darker.
New accessibility feature in @ChromeDevTools: simulate vision deficiencies, including blurred vision & various types of color blindness. 🔥

However, I do not allow such measures to cover all possible problems with eyesight among users – primarily because the developers do not understand which parameters need to be changed.
Google created a solution to this problem – a mode for simulating visual impairment in Google Chrome shows various types of problems: from a decrease in visual acuity and various color perception disorders to a complete lack of color vision. The function is available in the developers menu.
