> Jonathan,
> Thank you for the url. I scanned through this fascinating site this
> morning and will forward this information to the ADA compliance officer
> who works with this project.
> Thanks, too, for asking about the effect of the animated gifs on people
> with epilepsy. This is the first time that I have ever seen such a
> question. I have a epilepsy from being electrocuted. I did not have
> difficulty with these animations. What triggers my seizures is color
> mixtures, especially any combination of red/blue/yellow, and the
> movements need to be fast like with a turning signal on a car ahead of
> me in a turning lane, an emergency vehicle, flashing advertising boards,
> and the like. Your gifs are slow, are black and white mostly, and are
> simple movements, not swaying or twirling.
> Again, good work! I was doing my dissertation in the area of online
> instructional design and cognition. After my accident I had to change
> that. I'm pleased to see that someone is actually doing something to
> make reading and communication more possible in this text-heavy learning
> environment.
