If you're a World of Warcraft player who's colorblind, Blizzard will introduce a slew of new accessibility options in the upcoming 6.1 patch.

"For example, when you move your mouse cursor over a piece of rare gear and then a piece of epic gear, the game colors the names of the items blue and then purple, respectively. With 'UI Colorblind Mode' enabled, the game will add the words "Rare" and "Epic" to the tooltips for those items. For players who find it difficult to discern between friendly, neutral, or hostile targets, additional indication text in the tooltip will now appear when you move your mouse cursor over other characters.''

Very cool!
