For categorical colors, the "universal" color theme supports all color deficiencies and is from "Barrier-free presentation that is friendly to colorblind people".

 

For continuous colors, the sequential themes are good because they vary in brightness along the scale.

Hi, SoilStats!

I think your best bet is to go to ColorBrewer and find the colorblind-safe palette to accomplish your communication goal.  You can specify number of classes, the nature of your data, and color schemes.

JMP, and especially JSL, allows specification of RGB colors in all platforms.

Good luck!

The JMP "Universal" color theme works well. I use it as my defalut most of the time.

 

If you want to manually add a color theme. Paste something like this into your preferences.

Add Color Theme(
	{"Red Yellow Blue", 4099, {{165, 0, 38}, {215, 48, 39}, {244, 109, 67}, {253, 174, 97}, {254, 224, 144}, {255, 255, 191
	}, {224, 243, 248}, {171, 217, 233}, {116, 173, 209}, {69, 117, 180}, {49, 54, 149}}}
),

Note: From a script window, run Get Preferences();  Take what gets returned to the log, and paste it into a new script window. Make the first line say Set Preferences(...  rather than just Preferences(...

Insert this bit of code into the preferences script and then run it. 

Now you should find this color theme available in your Graph preferences.
