Not sure what accessibility changes will have the most benefit to your existing software? Are you in the build process and need to make sure accessibility has been appropriately considered? Use this checklist as a starting point.
Found Friday Vol 76 is upon us, and this week we have: a dead simple article on responsive design; a gorgeous letterpress poster for sale based on a Steve Jobs quote; a great tutorial on numbering ordered lists; a must-read article on judging business practices; and a solid tool for validating your site markup (as opposed to page-by-page validation).
Responsive design – website design that adapts to the device window – is all the rage these days. Like Skrillex (or so I hear, I don’t know). Anyway, it can be a little intimidating, but this article is very simple & straightforward. It’s a great way to get your feet wet with responsive (albeit not fluid) design.
There’s been a few different designs based on quotes floating around since Steve Jobs passed – here’s another, printed and designed beautifully. This letterpress poster is available printed with or without a frame.
It’s remarkably hard to have a nicely styled ordered list that doesn’t require images. Here, Chris Coyier shows us the path to beautiful ordered list number styles.
The Internet is a great place. The abundance of cat videos may be proof of that alone. But it’s also a place where it’s way to easy to pass judgement on something without knowing the underlying reasons for whatever you’re judging. I enjoyed this article, as it focused on exactly that – the underlying reasons why NetFlix is having some issues these days. I recommend reading it!
Page by page validation sucks. W3Clove lets you check your site’s HTML validation with just one click. Sometimes the simplest solutions are the best.
See you next week!
