Colour Scheme => Does anybody know a tool which could be used by blind people?

Hallo.
A good friend of me develops web suites, for example his own at:
www.augenpunkte.de. As you can see there my friend is blind and also
he uses a Braille-line to develop these projects. For example his own
suite at. But he has a big problem to find out the right colours for
his pages and so he asked me for a big list with some colour schemes.
A hex-colour-value for each part of a page (Text, Links e.g.)

So I have had a look at some tools in the net which were mostly very
well, especially the tool under http://www.wellstyled.com/tools/colo.../index-en.html.
Unfortunately, all these tools are not for blind people, because they
are often served about graphic elements and no alt-tack were used.

My question is: Does anybody know a tool which could be used by blind
people (no pictures as controls) to produce useable web colour
schemes? Normally his customers will select a colour scheme for his
new web pages. But the developer needs his selection as a text file
(or style-sheet) usable by him.

My idea is to use a existing tool but I'm really not a JAVA or Web
Developer. So I hope anybody is able to extend the (for example)
colorscheme2 tool to get it able to export the selected scheme as a
text or css file. Every value with a label, that describes for which
part he should be used.

Does somebody have an idea or hint?

Regards
Juergen

I can hardly help you for the colour issue.
However, I may suggest to change the layout of the banner with the
AUGENPUNKTE logo.
Its width is too large. With my visual browser, I have to horizontally
scroll.
