browsing effectiveness and satisfaction on mobile phones. Through the work
in Spring and summer, we have developed a system to support adapting colors
of Websites to improve accessibility for users with the following three

Now we are ready to start the user evaluation of the system. We plan to
start the experiment on Sept. 9. We would greatly appreciate if you can help
us distribute the attached recruitment ad through appropriate local sources
(e.g., online communities or discussion forums of users with color
blindness) at your earliest convenience.

Please kindly acknowledge this email and let me know if you have any
questions/suggestions. Thanks again for your time and help.
