Had an interview at a local design agency, one that actually does design. I dont think I will be the successful candidate, as I made two cardinal sins in the design field.

First off was calling Mac’s evil empire machines, yes I have a bias against Apple, but one must never let opinion override professionalism.

The second, wich ties in with the first a little was that I mentioned flash, the rule here is: dont bring up old technology. Sure flash is still used, but its no longer held in the same regard as it once was. I tnink if I can overcome my own perzonal bias I will have no trouble securing the next placement.

Accessibility and the iPad

In one of the forums Im a member I read the following regarding accessibility and the iPad:

have been working with an EIP student to work out the best way for her to use her iPad, ideally she would like enlarged text and voice-over (see quote below) , she does not need text highlighted. It seems that it is not possible to do both using the iPad accessibility options – any ideas? Apps? For this student the easiest way for her to retrieve her resources from her personal uni web page is to open them in iBooks, this saves a whole lot of moving files around. I am providing AccessiblePDF files at the moment as these can be opened with one mouse click to open and then another to open in iBooks..
‘Tonight I have found quite a deliberate flaw! I thought having zoom with voice over (both in accessibility) would be the way to go with the iPad. However, the iPad can only have one or the other. The reason given for this perplexing situation is that they have conflicting commands! Glory be! It seems that we can’t have larger print and voice over at the same time on an iPad!’

Im not an iPad developer (TEAM ANDROID!!!) but Im sure there is someone out there who can knows of a solution to this that I could forward on??.
