Increasing accessibility empathy through simulation

A few months ago I did a post showing ELMS:LN’s initial work on the A11y module which provides blocks for improving as well as simulating accessibility conditions. After lots of testing I’m marking a full release of the project we’ve been using in ELMS:LN for months (as dev).

This latest release includes many bug fixes and most notable new features of:

  • Simulating Field loss conditions including central field and peripheral field loss, applied via CSS/JS in real time
  • Colorblindness for many different forms of colorblindness, applied via SVG filters in real time

  • Accessibility block as fly-out with colorblind settings
