This descriptive qualitative interview study investigates knowledge of colors in students who are congenitally blind. The purpose of this research was to explore how the lack of direct experience with color, as a result of congenital blindness, affects judgments about semantic concepts. Qualitative methods were used to conduct interviews with 15 students. The results of the study indicate that students know the colours and have a favourite colour. The implications for practice are to pay more attention when we teach students with congenital blindness to associate colours with specific objects.
