CSS Summit 2014 Slides: Making Your Site Printable

This afternoon I awkwardly stumbled through my talk for CSS Summit, Making Your Site Printable. I can tell you that speaking to a screen instead of to a room full of people is a whole different experience than I was expecting. Fortunately for you I do not have an audio/video…

Patents versus Accessibility — Again

I’ve ranted about frivolous patents more than once here. Others far closer to the issue do it daily, so my voice is but a drop in the ocean (and yet nothing happens). This time it’s a little different, and yet familiar (read my April post Patents versus Accessibility). Thanks to…

Changing YouTube Playback Speed

This post originally appeared on the Algonquin Studios blog. YouTube gives users the option to modify the playback speed of some videos.

Accessible Bootstrap Frameworks

This post originally appeared on the Algonquin Studios blog. If you work much with accessibility, then you might consider the title of this post to be an oxymoron, a self-contradicting mess. Frankly, I tend to agree. Barring a compelling use case, I never start a project with Bootstrap and I…
