Testing websites for users with disabilities.

I recently attended a WP meeting, where one of the speakers shared a project she was working on. I would love to share it all of you.

Its a processing sketch to demonstrate how people with dyslexia view black text on white backgrounds on websites. It is something that many sites and designers are finding fashionable, clean design and modern style but is it the best solution for a site to be viewed by all. See in the link below how a person with dyslexia sees the text when you mouse over each line of text. And think about how you use white space and high contrast text.
