Yeah, I have a friend who's color blind. He's still above a minute, but I think that's more because of his LBL method and lack of practice than issues with recognition. Although he does have to remove either the orange or green stickers because those two get confused rather easily apparently.

Color blind is not the same thing as color deficient
I am extremely color deficient, but I can solve one, however, someone who only sees in grayscale probably has extreme difficulty unless they get special stickers.

Breandan Vallance is 'very' colourblind.
As in, so bad that he couldn't do megaminx properly (without putting pieces next to each other to compare).

Cubesmith does sell 3x3 stickers that are friendly for color blind people. As of last check, they still don't sell them for 2x2 or 4x4 or higher.

I own a set of 3x3 stickers for color blind cubers. But still have not placed tghem on any cube yet.

Mini dianshengs, I can't tell the red and green a part properly. I used to be red/green and yellow/purple (don't know how that works) but my eyes have actually improved, and it's much easier now. So when I used a mini DS, I can have a 20 second solve, then realise some pieces are switched.

Nobody can use Diansheng orange+red very well.
or FII for that matter, if you've used another cube before it sometimes you see the red as orange looks like 18 orange stickers lol. dad and brother both thought the same too.
