This is a .mat file that contains 12 colors specified by Matlab color triplets.
The file contains a matrix of colors(each row is 1 color) as well as a matrix of the names for each color. The names are the same as those given in the chart from the rgb function found on the file exchange at http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/24497-rgb-triple-of-color-name--version-2.
These colors are intended for people who would like to make their figures accessible to the color blind. It is also suggested that you 'double code' your figures using symbols as well as colors.
The colors were chosen using Color Oracle (http://colororacle.org/), a color blindness simulator, and tested on 1 color blind person.
I do not promise that these colors will work for every color blind person.
I welcome suggestions for improvement.
