About My Workshop
Vi avsluttet dagen med en fantastisk workshop med @aardrian om #a11y og hvordan vi kan være mer effektiv når vi planlegger for #uu. Hint: tenk hvilke features som gagner flere brukere – samtidig! For en dag, @boosterconf ! For en dag! #booster2019 pic.twitter.com/ivuAZw0pdv
Use free color contrast tools, follow WCAG guidelines, make sure hyperlinks, menus are visible. Put these in your style guide. WCAG has expanded it to icons, form elements, error mesages, hover, focus, selected states, more @aardrian @boosterconf #boosterconference #booster2019
Make sure that "has focus" and "selected" indicators are obvious and easy to see. Use a focus outline. Starting an a11y audit of a page by tabbing is a good idea. For video, audio, podcasts, use a transcript! @aardrian @boosterconf #boosterconference #booster2019
#a11y != a checklist. You have to understand how people will use it. Don't make a UI "stair ramp" that is actually a death trap for people in wheelchairs, and doesn't work well for people wanting to run up the stairs. @aardrian @boosterconf #boosterconference #booster2019 pic.twitter.com/tMs9n6Z4wt
I unexpectedly live-tweeted the opening and closing keynotes.
Three months of frustration to discover a software bug. It limited heart rate at 160, dropping it to 80. Written for an 80 year-old. Manufacturer still has not fixed bug. #Booster2019
She put together a hacking team and outlined risk scenarios. #Booster2019
The DDoS to drain the battery is simple & alarming. WindowsXP as the current platform is terrifying. pic.twitter.com/nOLbJe77A6
Pacemaker had a back-up that kept the heart at 70bps in case the memory failed (she showed a screen of error messages the tech provided). #Booster2019
Tech gave her a copy of the crash and log files. Which she gave to her students.
Talking about St Jude Medical / Abbott pacemaker security issues (where Muddy Waters shorted the stock before disclosure) and how it took 6 months before FDA announced it and another 6 months to fix.
Backfire Effect: people reject facts in arguments, entrench their views instead; correcting people increases false beliefs.
Notes she is trying to convince an audience by using facts. pic.twitter.com/H44s1b5ueN
