    SupaNova magnification - how does it effect the web page?

    Does anyone have any decent information about this? All I can find from Google is how has it installed on their public access terminals.

    Basically I would help in answering the following questions:

    • how does it work on static HTML web pages
    • do I need to ensure em values in css or will it increase the text regardless?
    • does anyone know how it reads pages, i.e L to R etc
    • We have absically been asked to supply/modify some pages which currently use a fair bit of js (to detect form details etc) which is not allowed within the disability guidelines they are wanting to comply with, they reckon that having this facility will mean the js is ignored - how?


    any other help you can provide, the pages are currently written with Perl and HTML with css inline and js inline

    Thanks all

    We do have SupaNova installed on this network though I don't have the privileges to access it.

    I have seen users whom have various disabilities using the program it seemed to just act like a gaint magnifying glass thus there was a certain degree of pixel distortion.

    you could install the demo and find out http://www.dolphinuk.co.uk/products/supernova.htm
    javascript doesn't have to be left out completely, but you have to ensure that pages work in the same or similar way when it's disabled. e.g. a js based dropdown menu might default to just having the menu headings as links, taking the user to an intermediate page which contains what would have been the menu options in the actual dropdown...
