Are you gonna finish strong?

“…So what do you do when you fall down? You get back up! Everybody knows to get back up because he first starts walking. . . But I’m not getting anyway… But I tell you, there is sometimes in life when you fall down and you feel like you don’t have the strength to get back up, do you think you have hope?

Video with French subtitles (avec sous-titres Fraçais)

Because I tell you, Ii’m down here,  face down,  and I have no arms no legs;  it should be impossible for me to get back up, but it’s not!
You see,  I will try one hundred times to get up,  and if I fail one hundred times;  if I fail and I give up, do you think that I’m  ever gonna get up?  No!


But if I fail, I try again, and again and again…
but I just want you to know that it’s not the end. It matters how you gonna finish. Are you gonna finish strong?


And you will find that strength to get back up…like this…”

Lutte contre la discrimination, l'Internet pour TOUT le monde!

Mettons-nous à l’essentiel! Les personnes handicapées devraient avoir les mêmes droits que tout le monde. Et devraient être en mesure d’accéder à l’information disponible sur l’Internet facilement.
Donc nous, en tant que bloggers, les concepteurs de sites Web, les programmeurs Web, ne devrait pas discriminer les personnes handicapées. Et pour cela, nous devons créer des sites web accessibles et des pages Web accessibles. Il existe des normes qui ont été inventé et mis en œuvre, ainsi que des navigateurs Internet ont été créés pour que les personnes handicapées surfe sur Internet comme les autres. Mise en œuvre de ces normes dans vos objectifs de conception, permettra à votre site (ou blog) l’accessibilité.
La Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) vise à mettre fin à la discrimination que de nombreuses personnes handicapées font face.
Actuellement, Gibni.com est un site qui répond à presque toutes les normes d’accessibilité. Cela signifie que, les personnes handicapées peuvent également surfer Gibni.com facilement et de profiter de ces articles, des discussions, des fonctionalitées, et des outils.
Chaque fois que je commence à concevoir un site Web ou blog modèle (Blog Template), je pense à ces normes et je fais de mon mieux pour leur mise en œuvre dans mon projet.
Pour faire d’Internet un endroit meilleur, je vous suggère de commencer à mettre en œuvre ces normes dans vos dessins et modèles de codes afin de faire votre information accessible à tous!
Ce sont des premières choses à faire:
1 – Vérifier les images pour un texte de substitution (alt = “” attribut de la balise img!)
2 – Vérifier les images de décoration pour un texte de substitution, comme les frontières, les coins, d’origines …
3 – Vos formulaires doivent être accessibles. (Fournir alt = “” pour les input, l’étiquette de votre formulaire, celui de ces éléments …)
4 – Votre texte doit être redimensionnable. Cela signifie que l’utilisateur devrait être en mesure de rendre votre texte plus grand ou plus petit dans son navigateur.
5 – Définir l’attribut “TabIndex” pour les contenues cliquables ou sélectionnables important et les éléments de la page, afin que les utilisateurs puissent naviguer dans votre site sans souris.
6 – Utiliser des raccourcis clavier pour les principales fonctionnalités de votre site.
7 – Utilisez un plan du site. Les utilisateurs ne devraient pas se perdre dans votre site!
8 – Faites vos liens comprehensible par l’homme.Ils doivent avoire de sens.
9 – Si vous avez du contenue son ou du vidéo, fournissez des sous-titres ou des transcriptions du son.
Il ya beaucoup d’articles écrits sur le sujet, vous pouvez donc apprendre rapidement et facilement comment le faire juste. Il suffit de rechercher en utilisant votre moteur de recherche préféré.

Fight Against Discrimination, Make the internet for EVERY ONE!

Let’s get straight to the point! Disabled people should have the same rights as everyone else. And should be able to access the information available on the internet easily.
So we as bloggers, web designers, web programmers, should not discriminate disabled people. And for this, we should create Accessible websites and webpages. There are standards which have been invented and implemented, as well as special internet browsers were created to let disabled people surf the internet as others do. Implementing these standards in your design objectives, will ensure your website’s (or blog) accessibility.
Accessibility Icon
The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) aims to end the discrimination that many disabled people face.
Currently, Gibni.com is a standard website which complies to almost all accessibility standards. That means, disabled people can also surf Gibni.com easily and benefit from it’s articles, discussions, features, and tools.
Every time I start a website design or weblog template design, I think about these standards and I do my best in implementing them into my project.
To make the internet a better place, I suggest that you start implementing these standards in your designs and codes so you make your information available to EVERY ONE!
These are first things to do:
1- Check images for alternative text (the alt=”” attribute of the img tag!)
2- Check decorative images for alternative text, like borders, corners, backgrounds…
3- Your forms should be accessible. (Provide alt=”” for inputs, label your form elements…)
4- Your text should be resizable. Means that the user should be able to make your text bigger or smaller in his/her browser.
5- Define tabindex attribute for clickable or selectable important content and page elements, so that users can navigate your site without a mouse.
6- Use keyboard shortcuts for main functionalities of your site.
7- Use a sitemap. Users should not get lost in your site!
8- Make your links human-understanable so they make sense.
9- If you have Audio or Video content, provide subtitles or transcripts of the audio.
There are a lot of articles written on this subject, so you can learn fast and easy how to do it right. Just search using your favorite search engine.
To check the accessibility of your site, use this tool: WAVE

QR Codes, The Begining.

QR Codes

Ever heard about QR Codes? You surely know about the Barcodes, which you see on almost every purchased product. Ever asked yourself about that barcode reader application on your new smartphone?
Well, recently there’s been a new invention called QR Code. It’s a square with lots of black nad white points in it! yeah, kinda strange and extraterrestrial alphabet!
This square can contain information which you can scan with your smart phone and save that info on your device. It prevents typing and more important TYPOs!
To know what it the technology and who invented this tech and different aspects of it, go to your favorite search engine and search for it; a good reference is Wikipedia. Click Here for Wikipedia Article on QR Code
So, if you’ve read the article on wikipedia, you probably know better about QR codes. Today, a lot of mobile phones have inbuilt QR Readers, where the Nokia N95 is one of them.
QR Codes mostly contain URLs and Contact information. You can see them on some products, in recent street advertisings, on websites, business cards and so on. This is still a new technology to the public, but it’s spreading very fast.
In the next post on QR Codes, I’ll write about how a QR code is created and what type of data it can contain.
In the following posts, I’ll write about how to create your own QR Code, and at the end I’ll explain how to implement a QR Code for the desired page of your blog or website automatically.
As you can see, recently I’ve integrated a QR Code for each post and each page on Gibni. This code is genertad automatically by the server and it contains the page/post URL. You can try it by scanning the QR Code at the left with your QR Reader or Mobile Phone’s QR Reader Application.
In N95 8GB, the application can be accessed from Menu > Applications > Office > Barcode.
