Looking for good examples of RIA wireframe documentation

Good Afternoon,

I've been working on a RIA for some time. I've essentially built medium-fidelity wireframes, then put them together in InDesign with callouts and some basic information. I have to say I'm pretty unhappy with how they look and inform. I think the problem is I'm not happy with how they lay out, and I'm not sure I'm giving the right level of information.

Right now the pages are landscape, legal sized. The way I have them laid out, it just doesn't flow very well, but the screens need to be big enough to see.

In this research, we attempt to establish thresholds of detection for changes in a graphical user interface using adaptive tracking. For keyboard interactions, subjects did not notice delays of approximately 150 milliseconds. In contrast, for mouse interactions, subjects did not notice delays of up to 195 milliseconds.

Re: [IxDA] Re: [IxDA] What makes designers frustrated?

Bill, Those are some real gems! But I might have you beat... Years ago I attended a Macromedia conference on the new accessibility features in Dreamweaver, 2001 I think, so that was DW4. Anyway, upon explaining the value that DW4 accessibility checker and other features would bring to our client projects (of which 80 percent where government and edu).

I had my Art Director/ boss at the time tell me "Why don't you stop with the 508 and ADA compliance crap.
