Several accessibility concerns immediately spring to mind, though I think each is a problem that can be overcome with good design and development. Generally speaking a functionally sound and graphically attractive offering could harbour some serious accessibility issues underneath the bonnet and the an inbalanced focus on these cognitively heavy development ...

Note : I havent found any studies which have done a comparative study between the conversion rate of an non-parallax site vs a parallax site and the points raised below are about how parallax may or may not help in conversion. The advantage that parallax scrolling offers is the increased level of engagement and the story telling which leads the user ...

Use AxureRP for that. A sample prototype is also available on their forum for that. http://www.axure.com/forum/tips-tricks-examples/8157-parallax-scrolling.html How to use this effect to better influence the navigation and the user experience? If you ask that does Parallax has an influence on user-experience then sure, everything you do in your ...

I don't think "parallax" is a novel UX pattern to be taxonomized as such. It's a dynamic visual effect applied to other (ancient!) scroll, pan or carousel interfaces. Your bullet points apply to these patterns more than the 3D-ish effect. Another way to put this is that the illusion of depth or moving through space is part of the transitioning between ...

One of the first questions you need to ask is "what benefit does this provide?" In this case, I am unconvinced that it provides a lot. Yes, it is cool as a concept, and there are some situations where it would be appropriate - in particular, where it matched other marketing aspects for the brand. However, as an interface to interact with, it is not clear or ...

I personally love one pagers given that there is more visual than textual. Researches suggest that it is a tendency for the users to scroll to see how much content the page has and if you have a lot of text in the page then they might skip it. My advice will be to make it more interactive by using progressive animations and good visuals if you can. Also, ...

This isn't necessarily a Parallax specific answer but more in relation to accessibility and motion, and IMO how it's influenced by Parralax effects and can even be improved by it... Only 85.5% of the population have what's considered "Normal Vision" where the rest are made up of varying degrees of Protanopy to Deuteranomoly to Full Colourblindness. When ...

Why, oh why, would you want to do that? Please don't do that... The sites that you linked may have "cool and interesting" UI's but the UX was terrible. If I wasn't specifically trying to work out what you were thinking of doing I would have left each of them very quickly. Clarity first. (And remember that the UX gods get very upset when people don't ...

Put usability and accessibility concerns ahead of making the site paralax is the simple tenet that I would advise you follow in order to acheive your goal. Remember that content comes first, that users need to acheive goals easily. Work on good, accessible navigation and keep content clear and easy to find. Remember users browse on different devices and use ...

I think question might be best answered by better understanding what 'accessibility compliance' is. See authoring guide at http://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria-practices/#presentation_role. In particular some text applicable to visual effects is Authors devote a good deal of effort to the appearance of their web pages, and this is especially true in the case ...

Build it. That level of animation would be as easy if not easier to build than dealing with prototyping software to emulate it.

As for where the technique is used as part of the UX the primary example would be side-scrolling video games. In that context, it makes perfect sense...it gives the experience of 3D without the distraction. It's still a 2D interaction plane, just made more interesting (and potentially performant in the earlier days) by using the technique. As for other ...

I think this can be made a community wiki post just by an answerer checking the 'community wiki' box below the reply field. I'll give that a go. (/EDIT - Nope, that just converts this answer to be a Wiki post. Not sure how to convert the question to a wiki one though). However, in order for this answer to be more relevant to the question I will make one ...
