Colours are an important part of user experiences on the Web. Colour schemes influence the aesthetics, first impressions and long-term engagement with websites. However, five percent of people perceive a subset of all colours because they have colour vision deficiency (CVD), resulting in an unequal and less-rich user experience on the Web. Traditionally, people with CVD have been supported by recolouring tools that improve colour differentiability, but do not consider the subjective properties…

Understanding interface recoloring aspects by colorblind people: a user study
TLDR
A user study involving colorblind people to empirically investigate several aspects related to the recoloring of web interfaces and reveals the advantages of considering the colorblind individual’s needs and preferences for the development of adaptive systems.
Recoloring Web Pages For Color Vision Deficiency Users
TLDR
The tool, FBRecolor, is presented, which leverages the foreground-background relationship between colors in a web page to further improve the recoloring performance while preserving naturalness, pair-differentiability and subjectivity and an improvement to a state-of-the-art recoloring tool in terms of the time complexity.
Color adaptation for improving mobile web accessibility
TLDR
This research aims to adapt colors in mobile web pages that are non-distinguishable to CVD users while preserving some properties of original colors, and proposes two methods to improve the efficiency of color adaptation to overcome the resource constraint of mobile devices.
The Windows 10's Color Filter Feature as an Aid for Color Blind People in the Use of Websites
TLDR
This research investigates the use of Windows 10's color filter to circumvent accessibility issues for color blind users, and shows an improvement in most scenarios but in different ways for different types of color blindness.
AutoWPR: An Automatic Web Page Recoloring Method
TLDR
The results show that the proposed AutoWPR method can generate a human-like recoloring result and help novice developers reuse the reference web page’s colors conveniently.
University of Dundee Enabling designers to foresee which colors users cannot
TLDR
An online color differentiation test that includes a survey of situational lighting conditions, and an image-processing tool that shows designers the proportion of the population they can exclude (or exclude) by their color choices is developed.
Enabling Designers to Foresee Which Colors Users Cannot See
TLDR
An online color differentiation test that includes a survey of situational lighting conditions is developed, and ColorCheck, an image-processing tool that shows designers the proportion of the population they include (or exclude) by their color choices is created.
Screenshot-based color compatibility assessment and transfer for Web pages
TLDR
This paper investigates color compatibility assessment for Web pages and applies this assessment to Web color editing based on Web screenshots rather than source codes, and constructs an assessment model that attributes scores to the color compatibility of Web pages through transfer learning.
A Method for Converting Colors for Color-impaired People, Considering Saturation and Contrast Ratio
Because color-impaired people have difficulty in perceiving specific colors, colors used in documents must be converted for them. The colors of documents include the intentions of their designers.
Methods for Compensating Contrast Effects in Information Visualization
TLDR
A color optimization algorithm based on perceptual metrics and color perception models to reduce physiological contrast or color effects is presented and it is found that the technique doubles the accuracy of users comparing and estimating color encoded data values.

An Efficient Naturalness-Preserving Image-Recoloring Method for Dichromats
TLDR
An efficient and automatic image-recoloring technique for dichromats that highlights important visual details that would otherwise be unnoticed by these individuals, and an extension of the technique that exaggerates color contrast tends to be preferred when CVDs compared pairs of scientific visualization images.
The impact of web page text-background colour combinations on readability, retention, aesthetics and behavioural intention
TLDR
Major findings were: Colours with greater contrast ratio generally lead to greater readability, and preferred colours led to higher ratings of aesthetic quality and intention to purchase.
Waiting for the Web: How Screen Color Affects Time Perception
The authors investigate the link between the color of a Web page's background screen while the page is downloading and the perceived quickness of the download. They draw on research that supports
An empirical investigation of color temperature and gender effects on web aesthetics
Limited research exists on the relevance of hedonic dimensions of human-computer interaction to usability, with only a small set of this research being empirical in nature. Furthermore, previous

Image Recoloring Induced by Palette Color Associations
TLDR
This paper presents a non-interactive method for recoloring a destination image according to the color scheme found in a source image, motivated by trying to invert the working process employed in oil painting.
"So that's what you see": building understanding with personalized simulations of colour vision deficiency
TLDR
A new simulation approach that is based on a specific empirical model of the actual colour perception abilities of a person with CVD is developed, and it is found that the personalized simulations provided new insights into the details of the CVD person's experience.
Automatic Mood-Transferring between Color Images
TLDR
This paper presents a new color-conversion method that offers users an intuitive, one-click interface for style conversion, rather than having to supply a reference image, and achieves more accurate and justifiable color conversion results, while also preserving spatial coherence.
A study of colour emotion and colour preference. Part I: Colour emotions for single colours
