Is using JavaScript to submit a form WCAG 2.0compliant?

Hi Marcus,

You're on the right track! What I think is happening here is that you're looking at that silly WCAG wording and thinking there's something else in there you haven't seen. It reads like a standard pre-nuptial agreement for Donald Trump, doesn't it?

The statement: "any information or functionality that is implemented in technologies that are not accessibility supported are also be available via technologies that are accessibility supported" means in practical terms that you cannot do anything in JS that you can't be done when JS is disabled or unavailable.

is one I've stumbled across recently and have been buying up spare copies
for friends whenever I come across it:

Is a Flash-intro to a personal portfolio still good/relevant?

Let's assume that you've done the proper work to provide a "Skip
Intro" button. Let's further assume that you've done at least the
minimum to make your content accessible to people without the Flash

The question I ask, then, is: does having a Flash intro to a personal
site, which may include one's portfolio or resume, make sense in
today's job market and design environment?

UX/IxD terminology: Prototype

Okay, I've heard lots of words around here that I think we all have
different meanings to us personally. The one that seems to be currently
messing up a few of us in one thread is the word "prototype", so let's start
with that.

To me, a prototype is a scaled down model of what you want things to look
like. I think what's messing us up the most is that it's too general of a
term and could be used to describe just about anything we do at any point.

I'll break down some of the terminology I use with the client and you can
agree or disagree from there.
