Color blind here. Can I get a text indicator for CORRECT or INCORRECT?

question in subject line. Maybe there is a userscript to do this for me? i put the same wrong answer several times in a row because i didn’t realize i was getting it wrong.

(I called “slide” “slope”. :unamused:)

That’s not a bad idea. I never realised myself that the only way you could tell is from the colour. That is, unless your item goes one rung higher (e.g. from apprentice to guru).

Reckon you should email them about this one, even if just to point them towards this thread, as it seems like a no-brainer.

They’re very nice! (hello@wanikani.com)

The indicator already shows an arrow that points up (for level up) or down (for level down)

But the Indicator only shows up, when you answer the second question for the item.

I feel like maybe there’s already a script for this. Lemme go dig…

Yeah, I vaguely remember talk about a texture or something? Not sure if that was implemented in a script or if it was just a suggestion which was thrown around.

Hmm…

I found this and this, but both are fairly old, and the first one doesn’t seem to apply universally.

Perhaps someone more well-versed could make a script?

If anyone finds one (or makes one) as a stop-gap, please let me know. I’m going to see if we can get something added for a permanent solution. Like @plantron, I never really thought about it, but I agree that there should be some kind of visual indicator besides a color cue.

@CyrusS I’m looking into something now.

@cantoryakov Would it be sufficient if I change the button/icon to the right of the input to different icons when correct or incorrect? Referring to the thing circled in the below picture:

Yeah sure, icon change is good. Also I find the WK app for Android has a thing where the answer pops up if you get it wrong. This is a great way for me to know when i make a mistake.

I’m color blind too (maybe we have different forms of color blindness, if you’re monochromatic and I’m protonomalyic), but does the site not already have pretty well-contrasted color indicators, or am I going crazy and it’s actually a script that’s been doing this for me?

e.g.

I‘m using the app Tsurukame. Maybe that helps?

Tsurukame has those little particle effects every time you get the answer right and opens the item info instantly when your answer is wrong. These are pretty good indicators :wink:

I think any kind of :arrow_up::arrow_down: or :heavy_check_mark::heavy_multiplication_x: would help with every level or perhaps whenever you get something right or wrong.

Accidental reply to you seanblue sorry! >w<;

@seanblue,
While (or if) you’re still looking into the color bar changes in Double Check, this would make a good option on the Colors tab.

Edit: I should rename the script to “Everything having to do with reviews” script, because it is slowly merging everything for the sake of compatibility :sweat_smile:

I was about to push it up as a standalone script (though I did add support for another icon for the close class that I plan on adding to Double Check). I think it probably should be a standalone script for people that don’t use Double Check (plus this will work in Lessons too), but I can add an “accessibility” checkbox in the Colors tab and duplicate it in Double Check if you want. It shouldn’t be much work.

I suppose since yours (above) is just CSS, it makes sense to leave it standalone. It shouldn’t conflict with Double Check.
