Marginally useful for visually impaired. Accuracy is hit and miss. Possibly because I have a mix of lighting conditions at my desk - some natural light from a window and fluorescents overhead. With practice one is likely to get better at selecting the lighting conditions in the menu. My primary complaint is that this is advertised as being useful for vision impaired and yet the menus are all text that may be very difficult to read. Simple graphics would be a much better choice - particularly for the lighting menu. Another thing against the menus is that they don't indicate the current selection. My final nit is that the screenshots in the store have had the ad banner cropped off. Not exactly truth in advertising.

Works! I can use this to identify led colors, I always have the hardest time, especially yellow vs green. I confirmed with help from a non colorblind friend that when aimed at a led, this thing works. You want to give it time to shout out colors multiple times, then just conclude that if most of the colors named have the word yellow or gold etc, then it isn't green.
