The differences in conspicuity for color-normal and deuteranopic observers were of a lesser magnitude for the search conspicuity condition than for the attention conspicuity condition.
The deuteranopic observers generally had lower hit rates under the attention conspicuity instruction, so the search instruction afforded them greater potential for improvement.
As a consequence, these signs are expected to have the same conspicuity for both colorvision-normal and deuteranopic observers, as was found in this experiment.
