Good color palette, usable for the color blind.


Question

I'm designing a chart right now, that will slowly have more items added to it. I'd like to create an list/order of colors for the items, that will be most usable for the color blind to differentiate between each item. Any ideas how/where to start?

If you want to go with "trial and error" approach, I'd suggest a tool named Color Oracle (cross-platform) which simulates deuteranopia/deuteranomaly, protanopia/protanomaly and tritanopia -types of color blindness on your computer screen.

(Also Photoshop has color blindness proof setups available under ViewProof Setup (CS5 has, at least). But Photoshop might be a bit overkill, if you're about to design a chart.)
