The project

The Canadian National Institute for the Blind’s new website featuring advanced accessibility features for low-vision users was launched as Adrian arrived at Devlin eBusiness Architects. However, it didn’t take long to discover that when text sizes were increased, Internet Explorer started exhibiting critical errors in the way it rendered the main navigation of the site.

Adrian rebuilt the navigation system to work correctly in all mainstream browsers on his second day at the company, under an extremely tight two hour deadline. The new system also meant less code – more of which was shared by both the Engish and French versions of the site – and better accessibility for all users of the site.

Commenting has ended for this post, but I'd still love to hear from you.
