Playing with CSS3

CSS3 offers some serious opportunities for mis-use with the transform and transition properties. Likewise, there are serious opportunities for really visually cool renderings.

As far as I can tell, only Firefox3.1+ (v3.5b) (Gecko 1.9.1b4) and Safari4b support the transforms, and only Safari4b supports transitions. Both browsers use proprietary prefixes for the draft properties; -moz- and -webkit-.

Programming images on the fly

I've had a little project on the back burner for quite a while. It's really for my design associate, so it's not something I really know much about; graphics. The ultimate goal is to take a bit of text, and turn it into a tricked up, glowing, lined, and drop shadowed image with an alpha channel. For getting my feet wet, I'll settle for making an image of the font's name, in that font face.

Now any of you graphic whiz-bangs can open up Photoshop or the GIMP, and go to town. The issue is, how do you automate it?

In a hurry?

This is an international non-paid support forum. Our members live and work all around the world, and none of them work for CSSCreator forums. Many will have quite different waking and working hours from your own. As a rule of thumb, allow at least 24 hours of a work day before bumping. Do not count weekends.

Screen reader survey

The WebAIM folks surveyed screen reader users, and published their first look at the results.

I found some very surprising conclusions regarding images and frames. It seems that actual users have different ideas about them than the accessibility "experts".

Accessibility and the Dyslexic

I have been meaning to pass on a series of articles related to the issues dyslexia causes for some time now. The series was published a couple of years ago, and Roger Johansson blogged about it a couple of weeks ago, bringing the series back to mind.

Dyslexia pretty much flummoxes me, so I'll assume you too. We can imagine most visual and mobility handicaps, but I, for one, have no way to anticipate the problems our designs might cause the dyslexic.

Dyslexia is not a single symptom disability.
