Enumerate and Give a description of those images they are to , a lengthy
description of the image in transcript or audio format and have them
give a concise or shortened description.
Unfortunately, you give some of the answer, too... or you could require
they come up with an adequate description or variation for the image
alt.

Will color contrast algorithms work or help?

or this tool, input the hex or decimal background and foreground
colors... get these calculated and get an example(for those that do
see)... is it accessible for blind users?
Can a version of this be made to be accessible?

You might also try the NFB Blind Web designers group
http://www.nfbnet.org/mailman/listinfo/nfb-web

Another possibility is the Blind Linux Users group. I know of at least
one web designer also on that group, who uses color and images when
designing websites.
