https://www.ada.gov/milwaukee_pca/milwaukee_sa.html

+02: CASCADING STYLE SHEETS.

CSS Generated Content Module Level 3 (Accessibility Section)

W3C Working Draft, 2 June 2016

Editors: Elika J. Etemad and Dave Cramer.

“…Content intended for visual media sometimes needs alternative text
for speech output. The ‘content’ property thus accepts alternative
text to be specified after a slash (‘/’) after the last
<content-list>. If such alternative text is provided, it must be used
for speech output instead…”

https://www.w3.org/TR/css-content-3/#accessibility

Leveling Up in CSS

By Jonathan Z. White.

“…There are four things you can do to stay sane while using CSS at
scale: use proper semantics, modularize, adopt a naming convention,
and follow the single responsibility principle…You should be able to
read HTML and CSS like a book. It should tell a story. A story has
characters and relationships between them. More semantic CSS will
ultimately make your code more maintainable…”

https://medium.freecodecamp.com/leveling-up-css-44b5045a2667#.jlnppxhvd

Thinking about Page Floats, Figures, Regions and Grids

By Rachel Andrew.

“A few days ago my friend Jen Simmons pointed me to some images

this could be built using Grid…”

https://www.rachelandrew.co.uk/archives/2016/06/17/ thinking-about-page-floats-figures-regions-and-grids/

+03: COLOR.

In Plain Sight: Text, Contrast, and Accessibility

By Ryan Frederick.

“Contrast is one of the basic elements of graphic design. It lets us
tell things apart. Yet in UI design, at least for the web, there is a
perpetual temptation to skimp. Things tend towards gray-on-gray.”

https://medium.com/shopify-ux/in-plain-sight-5639c9afb4c6

Colour Contrast – Why Does it Matter?

By Richard Morton.

“Colour contrast between text and background is important on web
pages. It affects some people’s ability to perceive the information
(in other words to be able to receive the information visually)….”

https://accessibility.blog.gov.uk/2016/06/17/ colour-contrast-why-does-it-matter/

Improving UX For Color-Blind Users

By Adam Silver.

“…In this article I provide 13 tips to improve the experience for
color-blind people – something which can often benefit people with
normal vision too…”

https://www.smashingmagazine.com/ 2016/06/improving-ux-for-color-blind-users/

+04: DRUPAL.

Building an Accessibility Toolbar with Drupal

By Michelle Williamson.

“In November 2015, a team from Mediacurrent participated in
Knowbility’s accessibility hackathon. One of the features we created
for the site was an accessibility toolbar. We were able to increase
the accessibility of the site immensely with relatively little effort
with this small addition…”

https://www.mediacurrent.com/blog/accessibility-toolbar

+05: EVALUATION & TESTING.

Setting Standards for Usability Testing

By Danny and Patricia Franzreb.

“Many practical user experience projects rely on very loose processes,
which are not explicitly defined. That might be ok for an informal
usability test, but we should have a more reliable approach for larger
UX projects. Just imagine how people would react if the automotive
industry created cars without having repeatable and robust standards
within the industry as a whole! Our digital experiences deserve just
as much attention…”

http://www.uxbooth.com/articles/setting-standards-for-usability-testing/

Why 5 is the Magic Number for UX Usability Testing

By Ellie Martin.

“Given that the probability of a user encountering an error during
testing is 31%, according to Jeff Sauro of MeasuringU, testing just 5
users would turn up 85% of the problems in an interface…31% binomial
probability shows that once you add more than 5 users to a test group,
returns diminish drastically-the more users you add to a test group,
the less you’ll learn.”

The Future of the Web

By Matt Griffin.

“Is the web’s way forward to be defined by a bunch of renegade
mavericks armed with Flash or JavaScript? Matt Griffin argues that it

like to build, and follow where their mistakes lead us.”

Time to Reclaim the Brand

By Gerry McGovern.

“Branding has long been hijacked by the very worst forms of

Libraries pay a huge sum of money to purchase databases.  It would make sense to use guides to teach database skills or point students to sources that teach them.  Proquest, for example, provides a number of Libguides that are free on the web and teach some skills and techniques that are promoted for getting the best results from their databases.  In your guides, appropriate Proquest Libguide(s) may be listed under the entries for Proquest databases.   Consider the examples a little ways below of the Proquest Database Guides as well as the links to other tutorials and Guides from search results in Google, Google Scholar, Google Books and Temple Summon Search.

.

Furthermore, since most students, many professors and and administrators as well as other professionals have had no training in bibliographic database searching, it makes sense to include links to places where on can learn the skills of database searching and searching in specific search platforms such as Google, EbscoHost, Ovid and Proquest. One might even start with “What is a Database” as that is kind of basic to the issue of how one searches them.

Research Guide Lists of Databases Available at a College

Lists of Database Subscriptions at the Home College

.

This is a list of databases that is only useful to your college’s community as the links lead to a login that only your college members have.  One, however, can make this list useful to anyone interested in the topic of the guide.  Simply do a search in each database that could possibly have content in the subject discipline of the guide.  For social work, for example, I used these phrases.

“social work” or “social administration” or “social welfare” or “public assistance”

Climate Change and the Threat to Our Cultural Heritage

The Louvre fell victim to extreme weather this month. Venice, Yellowstone and the Statue of Liberty are also all at risk from global warming. What can we do?

The timing was grimly appropriate. No sooner had the United Nations stressed the risk that climate change poses to world heritage sites than curators at the Louvre, in Paris, rushed to move 250,000 artworks to safety from flooding. Extreme weather had forced the closure of one of the worlds most famous museums  a museum, whats more, that is at the heart of the Banks of the Seine world heritage site, which stretches from the Eiffel Tower to the e St Louis, and where the river rose 6m above its normal level this month, to reach a 30-year high.

.

A week earlier the UN had convened its second environment assembly, in Nairobi, to try to tackle critical issues that are facing the planet, from air pollution, which it says kills millions of people a year, to the illegal wildlife trade that is pushing species to the brink of extinction. World heritage sites were on the agenda because climate-driven changes currently, or could in the future, threaten their outstanding universal value, integrity and authenticity, as well as the economies and communities that depend on tourism, according to World Heritage and Tourism in a Changing Climate, a report published at the assembly by the United Nations Environment Programme, the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation, and the Union of Concerned Scientists.
Its authors say that we need to better understand, monitor and address the threats to heritage sites. We need to understand how climate change will interact with and amplify the effects of other stresses, including urbanisation, pollution, natural resource extraction and, increasingly, tourism.

.

The report shows how 31 world heritage sites, including Venice and its lagoon, Stonehenge, the Galagos Islands, Yellowstone National Park and the Statue of Liberty, are vulnerable to increasing temperatures, melting glaciers, rising seas, intensifying weather, worsening droughts and longer wildfire seasons.

Climate Change and the Threat to Our Cultural Heritage

The Louvre fell victim to extreme weather this month. Venice, Yellowstone and the Statue of Liberty are also all at risk from global warming. What can we do?

The timing was grimly appropriate. No sooner had the United Nations stressed the risk that climate change poses to world heritage sites than curators at the Louvre, in Paris, rushed to move 250,000 artworks to safety from flooding. Extreme weather had forced the closure of one of the worlds most famous museums  a museum, whats more, that is at the heart of the Banks of the Seine world heritage site, which stretches from the Eiffel Tower to the e St Louis, and where the river rose 6m above its normal level this month, to reach a 30-year high.

.

A week earlier the UN had convened its second environment assembly, in Nairobi, to try to tackle critical issues that are facing the planet, from air pollution, which it says kills millions of people a year, to the illegal wildlife trade that is pushing species to the brink of extinction. World heritage sites were on the agenda because climate-driven changes currently, or could in the future, threaten their outstanding universal value, integrity and authenticity, as well as the economies and communities that depend on tourism, according to World Heritage and Tourism in a Changing Climate, a report published at the assembly by the United Nations Environment Programme, the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation, and the Union of Concerned Scientists.
Its authors say that we need to better understand, monitor and address the threats to heritage sites. We need to understand how climate change will interact with and amplify the effects of other stresses, including urbanisation, pollution, natural resource extraction and, increasingly, tourism.

.

The report shows how 31 world heritage sites, including Venice and its lagoon, Stonehenge, the Galagos Islands, Yellowstone National Park and the Statue of Liberty, are vulnerable to increasing temperatures, melting glaciers, rising seas, intensifying weather, worsening droughts and longer wildfire seasons.

What We Mean When We Talk About Accessibility

By Alistair Duggin.

“…Accessibility means that people can do what they need to do in a
similar amount of time and effort as someone that does not have a
disability. It means that people are empowered, can be independent,
and will not be frustrated by something that is poorly designed or
implemented…”

Research with Blind Users on Mobile Devices

By Ed Horsford.

“…Last year we did some usability research with users with a range

one in particular was about the way blind users of touchscreen devices
experience the web…”

We’re Just Temporarily Abled: Designing for the Future

By Jennifer Aldrich.

“We aren’t just designing accessible products and websites for a
subgroup of people who we may or may not know, who have permanent
visual or motor issues. We’re designing these sites and products for
our future selves as well.”

Quick Tip: How Z-index and Auto Margins Work in Flexbox

By George Martsoukos.

“Flexbox is well-known for solving common layout problems such as
sticky footers and equal-height columns. Beyond those capabilities, it
also provides a few other useful features that aren’t so popular.
Let’s explore two of them!..”

4 Forgotten Principles of Usability Testing

By David Travis.

“…Here are 4 principles of usability testing that have been absent
in many of the tests I’ve observed. 1) Screen for behaviours not
demographics. 2) Test the red routes. 3) Focus on what people do, not
what they say. 4) Don’t ask users to redesign the interface…”

User Testing v/s Usability Testing

By Pratik.

“My dear friend (ahem, I wish) Travis, now Founder and CEO of UBER App
got stuck in a traffic in Paris on a rainy day and couldn’t get a cab.
He took the problem in hand and started going to friends’ / bus stops
/ taxi stand / building exits, asking them if they would like to have
an app which could get them a cab in a click (and how). That’s user
testing…”

The Web’s Creator Looks to Reinvent It

By Quentin Hardy.

“…Mr. Berners-Lee and Mr. Kahle and others brainstormed at the
event, called the Decentralized Web Summit, over new ways that web
pages could be distributed broadly without the standard control of a
web server computer, as well as ways of storing scientific data
without having to pay storage fees to companies like Amazon, Dropbox
or Google. Efforts at creating greater amounts of privacy and
accountability, by adding more encryption to various parts of the web
and archiving all versions of a web page, also came up. Such efforts
would make it harder to censor content…’The web is already
decentralized,’ Mr. Berners-Lee said. ‘The problem is the dominance of
one search engine, one big social network, one Twitter for
microblogging. We don’t have a technology problem, we have a social
problem’…”

Do Icons Need Labels?

By Steve McCarthy.

“…For the last few years we involved in digital web/app/product
development have been heavily focused on adaptive and responsive
design, ensuring users have access to content across multiple devices.
We now need to take what this design approach has started, and begin
applying it to the way users orientate and consume content. The first
step is to understand the importance and strength of the Signs we are
creating. Only then can we consider optimising and personalising the
experience. Only then can we start to remove the labels.”

Branding is Bull

By Gerry McGovern.

“…Branding is bull, and that’s a fact. Branding in practice is the
manipulation of human emotion, the targeting of human weaknesses, the
wrapping of the product in an image that has got nothing to do with
the product itself. The gushing, smiling faces of actors pretending to
be customers. Branding is the mark of the establishment. The opposite
of authenticity…”

Computer-Assisted Embarrassment

Should You Really Reduce Form Fields?

By Shanelle Mullin.

ORLANDO  A gunman opened fire inside a crowded nightclub here early Sunday morning, killing 50 people and injuring 53 others in a rampage that was the deadliest mass shooting in the countrys history.

.

Authorities in Orlando said Sunday that the siege at Pulse, a popular gay bar and dance club, was quickly deemed an act of domestic terrorism. Police said that after a first round of gunshots at 2 a.m., the shooter took hostages for about three hours, until officers who went inside to rescue these people killed the gunman in a shootout. It was not immediately clear if the death toll included the gunman.

.

.

Orlando Police Chief John Mina said that the toll from this latest mass slaughter could have been even greater, saying that a SWAT team rescued at least 30 possible victims and brought them to safety. Police said they were not able to say if all of the people killed or injured were shot during the initial burst of gunfire at 2 a.m. or during the shootout with police three hours later.

.

Its absolutely terrible, Mina said during a news briefing. Fifty victims in one location, one shooting, is absolutely one of the worst tragedies weve seen.

.

In the aftermath of the shooting, officials said many things remained unknown, including:

.

A possible motivation for the gunman and more about his background.
The final death toll.

.

Identities of all of the people killed and injured.

.

A clearer timeline of what happened inside the club and when all of the victims were injured.

.

While police have not publicly identified the gunman, law enforcement officials and relatives on Sunday identified him as Omar Mateen, a 29-year-old from Fort Pierce, Fla.
