The site is nice and clean and functions well. The font is a bit small but 
otherwise it seems to get the job done.

 It looks pretty good to me. I wish I had Laakso's design skills.
 
 This would make a great example for an AJAX site.
 
 Works/looks great on my iPad.

[WSG] Colour Schemes for Accessibility

2011-05-09 Thread Carl Heaton
Dear WSG,

I am currently consulting for the Social Development Division for ESCAP
United Nations and my team and I are re-making http://www.unescap.org/sdd/

http://www.unescap.org/sdd/The question I have is that has anyone got any
tried and tested colour schemes that dyslexic and colour blind users prefer?
I have done my homework and see lots of contrasts that give the best results
but no actual colour codes.

Love to hear your ideas.

Kind regards,

Hi Seth,
I don't have exact info for you, but have a look at Section 3 of this document: 
http://www.texthelpdownloads.com/Mir
ror/pdfs/DyslexiaAndWebAccess.PDF
And also WebAIM 
provides a Colour Contrast Checker: http://webaim.org/resources/contrast
checker/ 
which is quite useful.

[WSG] Can I have a Safari check?

2011-05-09 Thread tee
http://208.43.169.106/m151/index.php/patterns.html

Add the product to cart. What do you see after that? An enable cookies page? A 
empty cart page or a product has successfully added to cart?

Please provide your Safari version. On my machine, it's v5.0.5 (6533.21.1) and 
I am getting an empty cart page (when cookies was empty I got a enable cookies 
page), however in iPod and iPad,  everything works.


Strange thing is it's only happening in this site and I am kinda suspecting 
it's something to do with ip address because the domain has not pointed to the 
server yet, but it doesn't really make sense.

Thanks!

I just get the enable cookies page - Version 5.0.5 (6533.21.1) on
OS X 10.6.7. Going back to the add product page and resubmitting
doesn't change that, though I can see there *is* a cookie set from
the domain/IP in question.

Thank you both! This helps!

I dug it further and found the cause. The application has a session cookie 
management, and you can set how it's being handled. The default is use HTTP 
only, it looks like the Safari v5.0.5 has issue with this when a domain is not 
pointed to the server.

Hi.
In terms of this, white text on a black background is what some people 
prefer, but black text on a white background is proven to be the most 
readable according to some research that was done.
In terms of colour schemes it comes down to your branding strategy, but 
the best way is to test a few out with various people with disabilities, 
of various kinds to make sure items are readable.

good contrast for the easily readability  for the aged persons. This theme
also give  you a good color theme also.

[WSG] a more cross-browser consistent box shadow effect?

2011-05-09 Thread tee
Please go to this site and choose the box shadow, 
http://css3generator.com/

In IE9, no shadow for the left/top but right/bottom only

#container {-webkit-box-shadow: 0 0 3px #ccc;
-moz-box-shadow: 0 0 3px #ccc;
box-shadow: 0 0 3px #ccc;}

My test shows that 0 0 6px is the closer I can get to make left/top  show in 
IE9, problem is, this will not work so well for Opera for the result I wanted. 

And a near future problem: I was hoping maybe in 6 months time it'll be safe to 
drop the vendor prefixes for a number of CSS3 elements including box-shadow. 
Should I do so I can never get the closer result across browsers. Am I right 
that if the vendor prefixes existed, browsers that can handle CSS3 native will 
still treat their prefixes?

Thanks!

0 0 3px cc works fine for me in IE9 on that generator page.

IE9 and Firefox 4 work without prefix. Webkit should be coming around soon.
