https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Learn/Tools_and_testing/Cross_browser_testing/Accessibility



Mobile Accessibility Gets a Seat at the Table in Developing Countries

By Ken Nakata.

“In the United States, it’s easy to become focused on the robust web
experience—and making that experience as accessible as possible. But

What is “Descriptive Audio”?

By UC Berkeley.

“…’Descriptive audio’ means that your video has additional audio
content that describes aspects of the video that are purely visual and
not accessible to blind or visually-impaired people…”

https://webaccess.berkeley.edu/ask-pecan/descriptive-audio



How People with Low Vision Access Computing Devices: Understanding

+02: CASCADING STYLE SHEETS.




What is the Difference Between CSS Variables and Preprocessor Variables?

By Chris Coyier.

“Variables are one of the major reasons CSS preprocessors exist at
all. The ability to set a variable for something like a color, use
that variable throughout the CSS you write, and know that it will be
consistent, DRY, and easy to change is useful. You can use native CSS
variables (“CSS Custom Properties”) for the same reasons. But there
are also some important differences that should be made clear…”

https://css-tricks.com/difference-between-types-of-css-variables/

Design Critiques: Encourage a Positive Culture to Improve Products

By Sarah Gibbons.

“Open feedback is essential for a collaborative UX process. However,

+07: NAVIGATION.




Is the Underlined Link Hurting Readability?

By Cassandra Naji.

“…Don’t underline text that isn’t a link. Use different colors for
visited and unvisited links. Make links accessible by writing semantic
HTML. Write specific messages for your links, that indicate where the
user will be directed (avoid uninformative phrases such as ‘click
here’). Keep linked phrases short, 3-5 words…”

The death toll from Hurricane Matthew has risen to 26 in North Carolina, with two more bodies recovered as some flood waters recede, Governor Pat McCrory said on Saturday.

.

The bodies of a 53-year-old man and a 47-year-old woman were pulled from submerged vehicles in Cumberland and Wayne counties, respectively, McCrory told a news conference.

.

More than 30 deaths in the United States have been blamed on Matthew, which dumped more than a foot (30 cm) of water on inland North Carolina last week. Before hitting the southeast U.S. coast, the fierce storm killed around 1,000 people in Haiti.

.

McCrory said towns such as Princeville, Lumberton and Fair Bluff remained under water. In Princeville, believed to be the oldest incorporated African-American town in the United States, water surged to house roof lines on Thursday.

A Decade of Crop Loss from Hurricane Matthew in Haiti

LES CAYES, Haiti  As Hurricane Matthew roared across southwestern Haiti, Joselien Jean-Baptiste huddled with his family while the wind whipped at his little house. When it was finally safe to venture outside at dawn the 60-year-old farmer realized his troubles had only just begun.

.

The storm knocked down part of the house where he lives with his wife and six children outside of Les Cayes, leaving only a small section of corrugated metal still intact. But that was the least of his problems. The field he had worked for 25 years was a scene of violent upheaval. His rice was swamped with river water; the mango and breadfruit trees were split like matchsticks; his corn flattened or torn from the ground by fierce winds.

.

It is going to take us a long, long time to get back on our feet, Jean-Baptiste said.

.

Haitian and international agricultural officials say it could be a decade or more before the southwestern peninsula recovers economically from Hurricane Matthew, which struck hard at the rugged region of more than 1 million people that is almost completely dependent on farming and fishing.

.

The Civil Protection agency said Friday that the death toll from Hurricane Matthew, which made landfall here on Oct. 4, had risen to 546, though it was likely to climb higher as reports continued to trickle in from remote areas. Likewise, the statistics about economic losses are still approximate, but appear to be catastrophic.

.

In the Grand-Anse region, nearly 100 percent of crops and 50 percent of livestock were destroyed, according to the World Food Program. On the outskirts of Les Cayes, where Jean-Baptiste lives, more than 90 percent of crops were lost and the fishing industry was paralyzed as material and equipment washed away, the organization said.

.

Re-planting vegetable crops can be done relatively quickly and rice fields begin to recover as floodwaters recede, but the loss of mature fruit trees that families nurtured for a generation is a staggering blow. It will take at least 10 years for nature to do what it needs to do to grow the trees back, said Elancie Moise, an agronomist and senior agriculture ministry official in the south.

.

International aid groups say the widespread crop damage will require an influx of seed packs for replanting once the immediate needs of emergency water, food and medicine are met.

.

We are aware that it will be more effective to distribute seeds to farmers timed with their next planting season, in early 2017, ideally with fertilizer or compost to help replenish the soil which has been flooded in saltwater, said Jean-Claude Fignole, a senior Oxfam official in Haiti.

.

A flash appeal for Haiti issued by the U.N. humanitarian agency in Geneva was not getting anywhere near the level of support officials are seeking, with only about 5 percent pledged so far of the $120 million requested. The lack of immediate help has caused frustration, with some people in the village where Jean-Baptiste lives just east of Les Cayes trying to force an aid truck to stop and clashing with peacekeepers on a recent afternoon.

.

Everything is gone here, he said, people are going to just leave.
