I would turn their face to the Sun on a sunny day.

Yellow is a bright color that fills a person with happiness and joy. It is a bright color that is on the light side of the color spectrum. It is the color of the sun that warms our skin. It is the color of the petals of the giant sunflower. It is the color of the canary that sings in the cage. It is a color that conveys optimism.
Yellow is my favorite color.

I would write it on a piece of paper in a grooved way and will let the man figure it out with his fingers. I know that he understand colors that ways only.

You have to relate it to something they already know; "Yellow is like black, except it isn't."

Yellow is the warm sun while a cool breeze blows on your face. Yellow is exciting without being loud or angry.

First I'd ask them what type of color blindness they have or do they have trouble seeing what most people would describe as yellow.

If they don't have any problems seeing yellow then why try to go into detail describing it? It's just yellow.

For people that have trouble seeing yellow then I guess I would take them to a school bus barn on a sunny day. Ask if the sun and the bus look like similar colors. If they do, tell them that's yellow so they have a reference point for the future. If not, just understand that they will never know what yellow looks like.

Depends if the person was born blind or became blind at some point later in life. Are they completely blind, just legally blind, or color blind?
1) Assuming they were not born blind they would already know what yellow looks like
2) If they were born blind they may be able to tell when its bright sunlight or dark like night. You could relate it to sunlight and warmth, but they wont know the difference between that and a bright warm light either.

The rest of the scenarios are easy enough to explain or relate to in some way.

They would know no difference in what ever you told them. They have no frame of reference since they have never seen.

I would ask them if they have sat near a fire on a cold day. How did they feel? Did they feel warm? Did they feel happy? I would say then that for most people, the color yellow is that feeling one has when near a fire on a cold day.

I would describe the color Red to them, then watch their facial expression closely. If they show disgust, surprise, or confusion, (or stupid enough to argue verbally), I'd then slap them upside the head for lying about a disability.

Have my German Shepherd chase a person down the street and tell the person, see that guy running? he's yellow.

My comment: Most of you are not thinking outside of colors and you don't know how to describe colors without using colors to describe it. For example, a blind person would not understand the concepts of light and bright. Many of you refer to the sun because we see it as yellow. Here is how I would answer: Yellow is like spring time. It is a light-hearted, happy color, it is the smell of flowers, the taste of citrus, it sounds like birds chirping. On the other hand there are deeper colors like green, blue, purple and brown. I would say that they smell like wood or cinnamon. They have a more serious personality and are like deep thinkers, but very calm. They sound like a deeper, masculine voice.

How the hell does a blind person know what color a school bus is when they have never seen it? How does turning their head to get sunshine or fire on one side of the other describe it? How about a taste...You don't see with your tongue. The correct answer to describe yellow light is : 4,000 angstroms to 7,000 angstroms.

Since the ADA requires brail information cards to the blind on flights, why would a flight attendant need to do so? Since color can only be seen by brains with working eyes, it is pointless.

The color yellow is warm to touch, tastes like lemonade, smells like daisies, and sounds like buzzing bees.

It is a warm, soft color, like a baby chick, or the warmth of sunlight in springtime streaming through a window warming up a patch on the carpet.

Put your hand on a window that's been warmed by the sun and think about the feel of something fizzy on your tongue like champagne or sparking water. Small fizzy, not big. The weight of a feather.

I would tell them about the sunshine and lemonade, but I would also tell that most warning sings are yellow because it is bright and catches the eyes.
