"A change in layout may necessitate a change in behavior" - @feather #aeadc
@beep @zeldman The foreword makes it good.
@zeldman I worked for visually impaired people for some years. Learnt a lot, it's a huge and challenging world. I even gave a speech at CSUN
@zeldman @feather my biggest problem is thin fonts, which are all the rage right now. So hard to read. Even with glasses!
Nearly through all three days of @aneventapart #aeadc and my head is about to explode. Going to have to stay off twitter while recovering.
It's a mobile accessibility party up in here at #aeadc, learning new tricks and building some empathy. http://instagram.com/p/qzJ4g1jMVX/
Add to Cart. If button says, "Add", screenreader reads correctly. If it says "ADD" it may say "A-D-D". Content counts #aeadc #accessibility
@zeldman idea: Add a global setting to your phone's browser on which hand you favor. Then slant the layout towards that favor before load.
Try accessing your site with your elbow. How would you design differently after that experience? #aeadc #accessibility
New additions to accessibility test kit: headphones, variety of devices, kielbasa... #aeadc @feather
be careful that custom gestures don’t conflict w/ OS gestures (ex. some kinds of swipe) @feather #a11y #aeadc
Great considerations, @feather! eg "lack of dial tone on a mobile phone is problematic for users with different accessibility needs" #aeadc
@feather I believe digital natives (a.k.a. kids) don't anticipate a phone dial tone - the context of usability is generational #aeadc
"Users need to be able to turn of animations/ parallax effect. This is very important for users with vestibular issues" ~@feather #aeadc
if everyone takes a shot every time the word "responsive" is uttered, we're gonna have a pretty good drinking game #aeadc
