ACE! Conference Slides: Selfish Accessibility

In addition to the slides, I’ve embedded video of my talk and way too many tweets after that. Video Impressing everyone on the internet, Paul Klipp has already gotten videos from ACE! posted less than 24 hours after the event ended. That’s impressive. I understand his tactic is to upload…

Typefaces for Dyslexia

Both typefaces claim that heavier strokes on the bottom prevent dyslexic readers from flipping the letters when viewing them. The original caption: A heavier bottom is used to show which way is supposed to be down. I’ve been writing this post in fits, so it may be a bit disjointed.…

Best Viewed in 1 of 11 Flavors of Chrome!

Make sure you view this on Google’s flavor of Chrome, otherwise, well, I have no idea what will happen. Sometimes it’s frustrating being a developer who’s been around to see Mosaic supplanted by Netscape Navigator supplanted by Internet Explorer supplanted by Chrome/WebKit. Developers just love dumping one platform for the…

CSS Bookmarklets for Testing and Fixing

I’ve relied on viewing the page’s source or popping into my browser’s dev tools to find a missing element, copy un-transformed text, check for inline…

On Use of the Lang Attribute

Way back in October I noticed this WHATWG HTML bug (26942) where someone asked why do these examples of <html> lack the lang attribute? I thought the answer from Hixie was a bit dismissive and not based on any data or real-world benefits of use, particularly in the context of…

Announcing My Ring Warmer App

Animation showing the Ring Warmer in action. If you have to wear a ring, then perhaps you have experienced the discomfort of putting a cold ring on your finger (maybe in the morning in a cold house). I decided that I could do something about that using the only tool…
