    Question Improving accessibility

    Looking for a bit of an accessibility crit and assist here... on
    http://dev.northlightarchitecture.co...ridserver.com/ .

    I'm aware that if I increase the text size, the text of the "Welcome to Northlight" section becomes unreadable as it is hidden. How can I fix this, any suggestions?

    Is there any other accessibility issues I should take into consideration?


    Thanks

    Richard

    Either set the size of the header to a fixed size, or make the box size fluid.

    any suggestions?

    Either that or change the nature of the thread before a moderator (I'm not one of them, I'm just their whipping boy) closes the thread. But I'm going to assume that you're asking for ways you can improve the accessibility of the site (in the way someone asks for an HTML or CSS fix) so I'm going to suggest to the higher ups that they do the same, as long as you're willing to keep it on-topic and prevent the thread from turning into a review.

    Well yes, I'm looking for a CSS fix that allows the text to remain visible when resized, an accessibility issue. But rather than simply asking for the fix, if anyone can suggest anything else that would help improve accessibility that I've missed, it would be appreciated. Would it really be better to open two threads on pretty much the same topic?

    Thanks again

    Nah, this thread should be fine. By the way (I think I mentioned this in another thread you started), I won't be back until either late Saturday night or Sunday night. If this hasn't been tackled by then, I'll take a look at it for you then.

    C. Ankerstjerne said it, take off the height from #landingcopy in your CSS - this will make the increase in height when the content moves...
