THE PERCEPTION OF COLOR

Okay so I've read a lot about people who see letters or numbers as colors. Here is a man whose perception of color is unlike anyone I've ever known, met, read about etc. Neil Harbisson listens to color, & yes I'm serious — 

Don't believe me? Watch him yourself. 

For example, going to an art gallery I can listen to a Picasso for example. So, It’s like going to a concert hall because I can listen to the paintings. And super markets I find it very strong, and very very attractive to walk along the super markets. It’s like going to a night club.
— Neil Harbisson

WHAT'S NEXT: Interview with Adrienne. A young woman with Synesthesia. I'd like to better understand her experience with color, and how it is effected from font to font, or if the type is already a color what happens then. I'd then like to ask her if there are any type of designed resources she wished existed for her or for others.
