Being able to identify colours is a fundamental human activity; colour identification helps us work, get dressed, prepare food, and keep safe. [] Key Method To address these shortcomings, we developed three new colour identification techniques (ColourNames, ColourMeters, ColourPopper) using a new colour name dictionary based on the largest colour naming experiment to date. We compared our techniques to colour namers using participants with ICV in desktop and mobile conditions, and found that ColourNames and…

Exploring Haptic Colour Identification Aids
TLDR
Two new colour identification aids are developed - ColourWrist and ColourVest - that maps any single RGB input to 16 unique colour category patterns displayed on the wrist using four solenoids and a vibration motor.
Discrete versus Continuous Colour Pickers Impact Colour Selection in Virtual Reality Art-Making
TLDR
The colour picker impacted the kinds of colours used in artworks, with significant differences in colour distribution characteristics, and implications of colour selection tools for virtual reality art-making are discussed.
Real-Time Mobile Personalized Simulations of Impaired Colour Vision
TLDR
This work extended personalized ICV simulations to work in real time on a mobile device to allow people with typical colour vision greater freedom in exploring ICV, and found that this solution provides a valuable mechanism for building understanding of ICV for people with Typical colour vision.
Seeing Colours: Addressing Colour Vision Deficiency with Vision Augmentations using Computational Glasses
TLDR
This work presents an exhaustive literature review of colour vision deficiency compensation and subsequent findings; several prototypes with varying advantages—from well-controlled bench prototypes to less controlled but higher application portable prototypes; and a series of studies evaluating the approach starting with proving its efficacy, comparing to the state-of-the-art, and extending beyond static lab prototypes looking at real world applicability.
Colorable Band: A Wearable Device to Encourage Daily Decision Making Based on Behavior of Users with Color Vision Deficiency
TLDR
This study presents a prototyped proof-of-concept device in a remote environment, considering the coronavirus pandemic, and discusses the daily support for people with CVD.
A Thai Color Detection Tool for the Blind on Smartphones
TLDR
The preliminary testing show that the development of an application on smartphones as a tool for the blind to be able to detect colors as effectively and conveniently as possible could perform considerably well on a low-cost device and might be considered useful for its intended users.
Recoloring Algorithms for Colorblind People
TLDR
This survey mainly addresses recoloring algorithms toward still images for colorblind people, including the current trends in the field of color adaptation.
A validation study regarding a generative approach in choosing appropriate colors for impaired users
TLDR
An experimental validation to the claim that a generative approach led by evolutionary computing in supporting interface designers to make colors accessible to impaired users is actually beneficial to designers and users is provided.
Image level color classification for colorblind assistance
TLDR
This work develops an algorithm to assist people who suffer from color blindness, and develops an implementation of the algorithm which can run in real time on Google Glass and shows how it can assist those suffering fromcolor blindness.

TLDR
This paper reviews the investigations that have contributed to understanding the nature and consequences of the problems people with abnormal colour vision have and the decisions that have been made to exclude them from employment.
Using Patterns to Encode Color Information for Dichromats
TLDR
This work presents the first content-independent method to overlay patterns on colored visualization contents that not only minimizes ambiguities but also allows color identification, and shows that overlaying patterns significantly improves the performance of dichromats in several color-based visualization tasks, making their performance almost similar to normal trichromats'.
A Computational Model for Color Naming and Describing Color Composition of Images
TLDR
A computational model for color categorization, naming and extraction of color composition, which identifies known color regions in different color spaces accurately, the color names assigned to randomly selected colors agree with human judgments and the description of the color composition of complex scene is consistent with human observations.
SSMRecolor: improving recoloring tools with situation-specific models of color differentiation
TLDR
The developed SSMRecolor tool builds a performance-based model of a particular user in their specific environment, and uses that model to drive the recoloring process, which can substantially improve the usability of color displays for users of all types.

TLDR
Nearly 90% of dichromats and up to two-thirds of anomalous trichomats reported difficulties with everyday tasks that involve color, and many had been excluded from a chosen occupation.
Color naming models for color selection, image editing and palette design
TLDR
This paper presents a method for constructing a probabilistic model of color naming from a large, unconstrained set of human color name judgments, and describes how the model can be used to map between colors and names and define metrics for color saliency and color name distance.
