Illustrator's color blindness proof setups available also in InDesign
t would be a big help for those of us who have to create accessible documents to have Illustrator's color blindness proof setups available also in InDesign.
Pushing a PDF to Illustrator to check this is an awkward workaround.
Adobe really needs to step up their game if they're serious about Accessibility and build into Indesign at least the proof setup for color blindness. My wishlist of feature requests is a lot longer but since this is already a feature that exists in PS and AI...why not IND?! This months topic of Accessibility in Indesign Magazine on Creative Pro really reminded me that Accessibility is needed more than ever today. Please consider adding Accessibility tools and all those other bells and whistles that would help us designers develop content that can be enjoyed by all. Everyone should have a seat at the table.

If Adobe were serious about accessibility, they would create a task team to tackle this at the top level to be filtered down across all Creative Cloud apps to provide a consistent user experience. We need to be able to proof these conditions through simulation plus have access to integrated contrast checkers for proper assessment at the time of design/creation. Not as an after-thought through a round-trip process to Acrobat who's report is great for the underlying aspects of tagging etc but does nothing for colour as it tells you to manually check them.

Would be fabulous to have this in InDesign, too. Could be built into the existing Output panel. Maybe color it Color accessibility?
Also could include a contrast analyzer because contrast between foreground and background is in all of the accessibility standards: https://www.w3.org/TR/UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20/visual-audio-contrast-contrast.html
A good contrast checker to use as a model: https://webaim.org/resources/contrastchecker/

"Accessibility" should be an available option in the category dropdown.
