Annual Social Media Check

Since the shelf life of data on social media spans decades and databases share data with other databases without validating the accuracy of data there needs to be a mechanism to allow the person to verify the accuracy their social data and a process to correct/remove discrepancies.

Translate files on the Web into Different Languages

Developed countries should help their small brothers by supporting softwares that will translate files on the web in their own languages. I think, it is a better start to educate PWDS in developing countries, if the screen reader are speaking their native tang? I also believe, that discriptive features must be increased and if it is possible, include discriptive portions, as part of the international proto call, in e-publishing. ...more »

Use Facebook GROUPS not Pages

When helping people to self-help or help other people, a Facebook GROUP is so much more effective than a page. I am the founder of SnowedOutAtlanta, and I found that using a group helped people to find out information from each other, help each other and help themselves. It is a multi-way conversation whereas a Faccebook Page is one way. It is very important to realize the difference

Privacy Controls

The constant changing of privacy controls by social media providers leaves me wondering about social safety. The privacy selections should clearly spell out in plain language the consequences of each selection. Or move to a model that is high, medium or low in terms of privacy because the controls today are overly complex to really know what and with whom your sharing information. Low privacy appears to be the default ...more »

Clutter and Flash Control

Clutter on webpages actually cause simple tasks to become more complicated or lost and not completed. The flashing, winking and other active content of ads, etc. is to some annoying and others a trigger for adverse symptoms.

Stop the Spam

My recent experience with a new mail account was amazing. Even after a month it remains amazing because there is no social media account linked to the email. I do not get the constant barrage of emails sent by the social media provider or it's advertisers. I just receive the email from family and friends. I find using email forwarding soon corrupts email accounts with social media provider spam. Need the ability to ...more »

Vine accessibility

Vine seems to be getting used by government officials. When that happens, there needs to be a way to caption the content. While there is space in a Vine to add text, it's rarely used to transcribe the audio on the Vine. Vines are so short, captions should be really easy for everyone.

Secure Employment Application

Accessibility without security can put PWDs at risk. Online employment applications may or may not be secured by a job board, organization or other employment entity.

 

Many online job boards do not vet or screen employers since access to applicant data is based on payment. If applicant information security was an important concern then it is likely organizations would improve accessibility.

Employment Application Timeout

The timeout period for online employment applications is typically 30 minutes. The average time for a person a to complete an online application is usually longer than 30 minutes. It would be helpful if the application software would prompt at the applicant how much time before prompted with a timeout. The timeout notifications which I have found works best is screen dimming, contrast change, and/or audible beep sound ...more »

Social Media Job Recruitment

If a company wants to recruit job candidates via social media, it will only be able to reach those individuals who can receive and interpret the content being shared. Complex processes, marketing and/or public relations material included on job postings creates job postings that are difficult to understand how to apply, to cluttered to navigate and/or unreadable. I find government job postings to be complex because ...more »

Non-image PDFs as Advertising for Jobs

Often times, applications or job advertisements which are used to publicize a position on social media web sites are image-based portable document files (PDFs). For those individuals who are blind, visually impaired or print disabled, these files are nearly impossible to read. This group of people uses screen reading software to access information no the computer screen. This technology, though advanced, is not capable ...more »
