I enjoy being outside & staying active by walking, mtn biking or paddling boarding. But if I'm really honest my favorite outside activity is being on my porch with a good book. I have been married for 20 years, have a teenage boy, a blind dog & a cat.

ALL CAPS

In order to make his main message standout visually each page on Howard’s new insurance website has a headline in all capitals.

Headlines in all caps are not considered accessible for screen readers because screen readers may interpret all caps as acronyms, not words - and read out each letter instead of the sentence. How confusing would that be?

So I did not enter those headlines by typing all caps. Instead, to make them accessible, I used the text transform CSS style which shows them as all caps, but allows them to be read as words by screen readers.

Accessiblity isn’t something that most developers and web designers take into account. However many types of businesses are legally required to have accessible websites.

I try do things the right way even if it's not the easy way like focusing on these kinds of details.

Jody owns a natural healing spa. She’s always talking about this weeks’ produce box from her CSA. Ask her if she’s ever tried to navigate her website using just her keyboard.

Website

My clients know they need an effective website to stay competitive today. They don't want to be an expert at designing a website or keeping it fast & working well. And who wants to deal w/ call centers? So they hire me to take care of it all.

Development

I get asked about a website's performance a lot by potential clients. Websites should load quickly so viewers don't move on to the next website.

#1 - The website was built on a DIY service by a non-professional who used very large images straight from their phone on the site.

#2 - The website is hosted on shared hosting. The hosting service packs a lot of sites into the same server space. So each website is affected by the other's traffic volume and not allowed enough server resources.

#3 - The website site speed rating is slow on mobile but not on desktop. Mobile is generally slower than desktop. However the average viewer doesn't notice that it is slower because of the way the website is set up to load. So the speed rating may be lower but the perception by the viewer is that it is fine.

A website performance can be affected by many things - how the site is set-up, where it is hosted, how big the images or videos are that are on it, but the perceived speed of the site is just as important as the actual speed rating.
