Providing English Content

One of the things I find the most frus­trat­ing about using the inter­na­tion­al web is when web­sites offer­ing Eng­lish ver­sions do not pro­vide an intu­itive way to find the Eng­lish ver­sion.

Paving Paths and Website Accessibility

I have been work­ing my legs too hard over the last cou­ple of weeks with my non-stop cycling. Last week­end cer­tain­ly was not enough time to let me legs recu­per­ate. I decid­ed to dri­ve to work this morn­ing in hopes that a third day will be enough to get my legs back to nor­mal.

Any­how, while walk­ing from my truck to the Uni­ver­si­ty of Leth­bridge on one of the new paths, I was reflect­ing on how the path has a lot to do with web design.

Television, Remotes and Accessibility

My remote con­trol was not designed to include a bat­tery indi­ca­tor. My cell phone was designed with one. My Pock­et­PC was designed with one. My dig­i­tal cam­era was designed with one. Near­ly every elec­tron­ic device I own that runs on bat­ter­ies was designed to include a bat­tery indi­ca­tor to let me know when the bat­ter­ies are low. The remote con­trol was not. Why is this a prob­lem?
