How to Make Your Website Accessible to All
"Hello My name is Jeff White. And I'm the CO founder of Kula Partners, a marketing and web design, and Development Agency based in Halifax Nova Scotia Canada. We work primarily with BT manufacturers located throughout North America and I'm also the CO host of a podcast called the Kula ring where we interview those manufacturing marketers and learn about their successes and failures and the things that they're most interested are excited about. But today, I'm here to talk to you about how to make your website accessible to all. It's a really important topic and not one that a Lotta people understand or even know. The importance of. But the fact of the matter is. Over thirteen percent of adult Americans have some form of disability with vision and hearing loss being the most prevalent and in this day and age there are actually lawsuits being levied against organizations that do not have. Websites in fact, the same laws that apply to accessible places such as having wheelchair ramps or accessible washrooms the ADA. With disabilities, act applies to the web. So what are we going to talk to you today about how you can structure your site in a way? So that is going to be available and accessible to everyone and I'm GonNa show you exactly what you can do in order to make your site available to all. With thirteen percent of Americans having disability, and the fact that in many beat be sales relationships having eight ten to fourteen. Members of buying committee. There's a very real chance that some of the people that you're trying to sell to actually do have a disability and as such ensuring that your site is available to those people is not only the right thing to do but it also may impact your ability to sell to the companies that you want to sell to. So, let's talk about that. From a foundational perspective. One of the very first things that you need to consider when you're building an accessible website is that your navigation is clear and concise and that it makes sense and adds value to the content on the site. Many. People when they're putting together their information architecture, there's main sitemap navigation? Used general categories such as products services about us, things like that. But those don't really begin to describe what kinds of content you're going to find underneath of them. and. I often urge our clients and others that we work with to use more descriptive language that talks about the actual categories of products at the top level of their site. This ensures that upon first glance or I read through of those navigation categories that someone can actually get more information about what it is that your company does or cells. So I would encourage you to put those key categories into the navigation to ensure that it actually makes additional sense to someone who's breeding it or viewing it for the first time. While it's very important for your navigation to be well-structured and for the link names to be relevant and descriptive of the content that people are going to find behind them. Structuring the page hierarchy of the site is of equal importance. And not only does this help to organize the content within the site, but it also helps to ensure that visitors to the site are able to find where they are in the overall site structure. You need to add signposts, breadcrumbs, and other elements help people exactly what page people are on within the site and what category of content they're looking at it in. This will help them ensure that they know where they are spatially within the site. One of the great things about using semantic. For your navigation is that not only are you going to make it easier to understand in use for all of your site visitors, but it's going to have a positive impact on your on page search as well. So as you're creating this navigation, the second thing that you need to consider is that people with certain disabilities are going to have a hard time navigating the site with traditional tools like track pads and mice, and touch. They're going to be using screen readers and other assistive tools. And they need to be able to move through the site in a way that isn't necessarily the same as what a sighted person would be able to do. So, we like to employ something called keyboard navigation that allows a user to quickly skip past all of the chrome or navigational elements that they can get right to the meat of the site this happened by hitting the tab key and allowing somebody to actually skip directly to the content within the site, and if they choose not to do that, it will actually read to them what the different navigational elements are. So implementing keyboard navigation is one of the quickest things that you can do to actually make your site accessible. If you're looking for a guide to all of the requirements for website accessibility you need look no further than the website content accessibility guidelines or why Cag-. This is a list of all of the available accessibility features and things that need to be built into your site to meet or exceed the accessibility standards. There are currently two core levels that we are concerned about, and that's Aa and. AAA. AAA guidelines actually add additional scope for higher level contrast, as well as devices and considerations for those with cognitive disabilities, not just hearing or sight. And there are two different levels of this. The AA guidelines have less stringent contrast requirements. In. Small text. It's four and a half to one in the triple A. Guidelines looking at a difference of seven to one. So this insures that text that is smaller than eighteen point in Roman or fourteen point in bold has sufficient contrast between the foreground, the background. So as to be legible to those who may not have the ability to see it as clearly as those with regular normal site.
AI Tries to Save the Whales
"We head to the Pacific northwest to understand the obstacles that confront these endangered orcas and how researchers are using artificial intelligence to help orcas and humans to coexist. WHAT HAPPENED TO J thirty five or Tala wasn't an anomaly the southern resident cavs have been struggling to survive for some time they've been listed as endangered in both the US and Canada since the mid arts. But their numbers continue to fall in two, thousand five there were eight. Now there are just seventy two in the wild one lives in captivity. Their home waters in the sailor, see an elaborate network of channels that span the coasts of Seattle Vancouver from Olympia Washington in the south to the middle of Vancouver Island British Columbia in the north. The see encompasses puget sound the Strait of Georgia and the Strait of Juan De. FUCA. Much of it is rich in natural beauty and teeming with wildlife with rural shorelines backlit by tall evergreens and craggy. Hills. It's a magnet for nature lovers who crave inactive lifestyle, but the Pacific northwest has been getting crowded these paths few decades with people competing for space with the local wildlife as of two thousand twenty. Washington's population was nearly eight million and Vancouver's topped out at about two and a half million and is projected to grow. It's become a busy place. So you see things like Bald Eagles nesting next to satellite dishes in busy parking lots. Big. Ravens Beg for food next to cold press coffeeshops commuters hop on ferry boats here like people in other towns take the train or the car. On these trips they can sometimes spot the southern resident orcas milling about but a lot of the time the orchestra framed by ferry boats or container ships. The area's ports are growing along with the population. In twenty eighteen Porta Vancouver ship activity reached a record high and the port is undergoing numerous expansions. Increased. Commercial ship traffic on top of recreational boat activity is one of the biggest threats facing the whales that live here. This traffic causes numerous problems ships pollute the water, and they're loud under the waves. As we're about to find out the ocean is getting crowded and noisy, and it's negatively impacting the whales. Dr Lance Barrett Lennard is the director of the Marine Mammal Research Program at the Vancouver Aquarium. There's also a lot of heavy vessel traffic that comes in some of the going to the port of Vancouver some of the going to the port of Seattle unfortunately both both major west coast ports. have their roots running through. Southern Resident Critical Habitat. But the obvious problem he says is that more boats increase the chances that Wales will get hit. especially, if the boats are going fast. Whale is far less likely to be hit by ship that's running slow, and if it's running less than ten knots, a good chance to survive even if it is hit, that's just the facts. So regulators started issuing slowdown directives, it few areas these slowdowns are mandatory, but in the Pacific northwest or the orcas live, they remain mostly voluntary. Mariner say they want to avoid the ORCAS but there are business conflicts John? Berg. Is With Pacific, Merchant Shipping Association a Trade Group that represents about thirty shipping lines that do business along the Pacific coast. For a lot of ships. Schedule Integrity. Is. Paramount. and. So they need to be at a certain port at a certain day in a certain time. And so planning is essential especially since coming in late can mean higher fees and lost revenue. Mariners go back and forth about how quiet ships they talk about things like reducing noise by finding optimum speed or by retrofitting or upgrading vessels with more efficient quieter parts. They even say that in some cases slower vessels. Moore of Iraq. Now to researchers, this is a settled question, the faster ship the louder the ship. And it's the noise that is even more detrimental to the ORCAS than ship. Strikes. The underwater cacophony is mostly generated by ship's propeller. It releases vapor filled bubbles. ORCAS like all CETACEANS rely on echo location to communicate, made and find food. For ORCAS, it's how they find salmon as the ORCAS chase salmon they make clicking sounds that they send out into the ocean. The click then bounces off of the salmon and creates an echo, and that's how they know where the salmon are underwater noise pollution specialist. Dr Lindy Wildcard is an adjunct research associate at Dalhousie University in Halifax Nova Scotia Canada. CETACEANS are particularly vocal of the US sounds to find their prey actively using bio sonar. And the various noise sources that humans put into the ocean can affect. Wales and that they are masked, that is the sounds of interests are obliterated by by US adding this sort of acoustics smog of of noise so they can't hear as well. You can actually hear the masking that wildcard is talking about listen to this underwater recording of northern resident orcas who have different dialects from their neighbors, the southern resident or is this recording was provided by Orca lab a nonprofit research center based on Hanson Island near British. Columbia. Canada. Those. SQUEALS ARE ORCA calls. Here's what happens if you overlay their calls with recording of the ship underwater. It drowns out the ORCAS squeals. All you hear is ship noise. That's because the sound created by the ship is at the same high frequency ranges the ORCAS. It's kind of like being at a dinner party where people are talking over each other. But for the ORCAS, the increased sound means they'll lose their seat at the table. If the ORCAS can't hear themselves they can't hear the seminar and so they can't find food. And that can have far reaching impacts that affect the entire population. Their stress hormones can increase. with, noise with the seismic Airgun sounds they also reduce their vocalisations to the point of sometimes falling outright silent, which means they can't communicate with each other and that probably affects mating. If mayors could know where the ORCAS are. They could try to avoid that part of the ocean or at least slow down. So their engine noise doesn't drown the ORCAS OUT Ideally. They'd only have to go slow when the orcas were in the area, but it can be hard for ship captains to confirm where the whales are in fog rain or even under normal circumstances ship captains can't always see them they often miss them. So some conservationists along with the Canadian government installed underwater hydrophones in the Salish Sea along the coast of British Columbia near known ORCA HABITAT, they wanted to be able to track the ORCAS through their echo location calls. But remember how it works. Sound was drowned out by the ship's well, it's not just hard for the orchestra here. It's hard for the humans to. It can take people a long time to listen to all those recordings figuring out what is well sound, and what is this ship fish or other marine life sounds the orcas make noise at all hours of the day and night, and all of that sound even that record overnight has to be listened to by someone. Up. Next. How artificial intelligence can help speed this process up? And maybe find a solution for both the ships and the whales.

"Got questions. I've got answers as the high high end to play the message press two how I'm saying I tell me. How did I get them. How did you get your freckles got a good one so our skin. Has This stuff called. Melanin and basically freckles are just little dots. A melon melon is light absorbing pigment and helps us protect the skin Dan from the sun's harmful uv rays by the reflecting or absorbing and just dealing with this radiation so when you have a ten as the the Melanin acting up doing its thing to protect you from the Sun. Some people have more some people less and that's just how the body works people who are Pale have less melon elden and that's why they tend to burn Tan. We have these skin cells called Melena sites which is where Mellon is made freckles happen. When these Milana insights they just got a little hyperactive create. These really concentrated clusters. Melanin like a ten but just a single dot boop she got them by. I being exposed to the sun at some point of your life and having particular Milana sites go a little overboard on the protection to go to the next message press six. I signed my name is Henry and why are video games so finally thank you. Why are video games so violent. I I think people just I want to try to do things that they wouldn't be able to do. Normally so since you know. I'm not really necessarily surly good to give an opinion because I'm a little bit partial because I play video games myself so with me someone a little bit more impartial impartial Douglas John he'll food. A lot of people believe that we have these urges that there's you know they're there and we need to get them out. <HES> IT turns out. That's not actually true. I'm Dr Dr Douglas Genteel. I'm going to try and psychologist and professor of psychology and I stayed university to I've been studying the effects of media on children especially video video games since nineteen ninety s if we think about what has helped you survive across tens tens of thousands of years part of it is being alert for danger and and so when ever fight breaks out in the school the first thing everyone does is turn to look and that's actually correct first reaction because if rapes out you might need to get involved with it you might need to get away from it but either way to figure that out you have to look at it and so violence makes us look and so it keeps our attention and of course a game designer wants you to stay involved in the game so violence is one way to kind of. Hook our attention and this is why there's not only so much violence in video games but also in television and movies <music> to go to the next message press six high tiny name name is Alex. I'm calling from Halifax Nova Scotia and my question is our changing climate are far changing the climate art well. That's very interesting because our farts. I'd say that are farts. Are they're pretty good. You know we've done pretty good keeping them limited. Sometimes we'd eat too many beans but I think we're keeping it under control. I read this thing. The big thing thing is that it's not our farts. It's cow farts. Don't know much more than that so I'm gonNA. Give this over to our. RCB meteorologist in science reporter Joanna Wag Staff Joanna Arts Short answer is yes far are are actually changing the climate mammals have always been farting in Bahrain and releasing methane but it's it's really cows that are the big game changers when it comes to global warming right now. There are so many cows around the world there are <music> over one billion cows all farting and burping this methane gas and methane is a greenhouse gas. You've probably heard of CO two or carbon. Dioxide side is being a greenhouse gas which basically axes a big blanket around earth warms. Our planet up and methane is an even bigger greenhouse gas than co due to <hes>. We don't have as much of it in the <hes> in the atmosphere but NASA estimates since the turn of the century methane gas emissions have increased by a hundred and fifty percent and that's because we're using cows in different ways. We're concentrating them in areas for beef and for milk and it's the sheer number of them concentrated in one area. That's leading to this massive increase in methane. Actually it's not just the cow farts that contribute to the release of methane cow burps. Actually we have more methane in it so when cows are digesting through their four different stomachs and the byproduct methane a lot of it gets worked out at the beginning rather rather than at the end but both of the berks counterparts are contributing to the warming that we're seeing around the planet right now

"halifax nova scotia" Discussed on Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard
"Saturday nights for Monday and Tuesday, television tapings to save money, and it was every every area that we could look at cutting. We were cutting. Just transportation alone. Melter would say, could range fifteen thousand to thirty thousand to just get the crew in there. So, but by staggering these tapings, you're going to save a boatload of cash there and you're gonna do the Tuesday shows where they're within driving distance. So you don't have any a new new flight expenses and they're still doing this now. I think a lot of people maybe no pay attention to this, but like on Monday nights magnums running house show, and then they're going to drive to wherever TV as on Tuesdays. So they're still using what they've learned here in ninety seven as a cost cutting measure. They're still using it today to keep costs down and melts word right. There are numerous San's of late that the WWF is taking the financial situation very seriously. For example, the July twenty first show in Halifax, Nova Scotia there were many regulars who are always brought a raw tapings that were flown in as a cost saving measure. And a lot of guys were featured in tape. Segments as opposed to being brought in to do live new material. And this is interesting. It's exactly what you just said. Those who were flown in which we believe includes Vincent man himself. We're brought Saturday as opposed to a Sunday just so they could get the cost savings of a Saturday stay overflight and a lot of people who don't travel may not realize this. But if you stay over on a Saturday night, the near flight is usually a little cheaper because a lot of the airline travel is for business purposes, and they want to try to incentivize weekends days as opposed to business travel. So Saturday night, if you fly on Saturday and then fly back on a Monday, it's a little cheaper than if you were to fly on Sunday. Right? Bruce, absolutely. And it's a huge savings in we went through it again, went through with a fine tooth comb looking at who needed to come to TV, who didn't need to be at TV if you weren't needed at TV, you are no longer going to be there. There have been an awful lot of fat. At, and it was just based on the way that we had always done business. So we would always bring extras an extra people to TV to make sure that we had all of our bases covered, and it just came down to dollars and cents of man. If you're not needed, you're not coming. And if you are coming, you're going to have to sacrifice some things and said, you're gonna have to come in on Saturday night and spend the night Halifax, Nova Scotia. So the new television format would kick in on September eighth, which would mean you'd have television tapings on alternate Mondays and Tuesdays, like the September eighth raw from Cincinnati would be live, but instead of taping the next week on the fifteenth, they would actually go ahead and type it the next day on the ninth and the shotgun show that was taped on the night, wouldn't air until the twentieth and they would continue that. But the big change that I remember is the moving the show back one hour and that started on August fourth, the day after the summer slam. So I'm in the central time zone for years and years. Rall was seven to nine, but then you guys moved it and it became eight to ten or in eastern time nine to eleven, why the decision to move an hour later? Is that a WWF idea? Is that a USA request what he recall? I think it was a combination of both. And USA wanted us to be more competitive with nitro and they wanted. They felt that by moving us later. First of all, you have the. FCC standards and practices if you will, that you could get away with a little more risque in a later time frame from that nine to ten or ten to eleven time zone on the east coast. So it was. It was basically something that USA and us we both wanted to do and felt it was good move..
