Color-Blindness: Suggestions for tweaking Illustrator to help color-deficient users

Swatches and the color-picker are of limited utility for persons unable to identify colors reliably.  One program I used to use offered a virtual crayon box with the colors named and labeled.  This was helpful.  Still moreso was an eyedropper tool which I could touch to a color I wanted to replicate.  When the tool had "absorbed" the color, touching it to the target would make its color match the source's color.  Possibly Illustrator does possess similar features, but I have not found them, and without them, further exploration of the program is futile.  Thoughts?  Advice?

In the swatches panel, use the drop-down menu to view the swatches as a list to see them named.

Use the eyedropper tool (I) to take colours and apply them from a source.

Hi there,

 

Thanks for reaching out. In addition to what Doug has suggested, I'd request you to check out this help article(https://helpx.adobe.com/in/illustrator/using/appearance-attributes.html) to know how to adjust appearance. Hope it helps.
