@DA01 yup. We just did some usability testing and found just that too.

comment Do disabled buttons still need to be contrast compliant for accessibility?
@JonasDralle I'm not suggesting having a colourblind inaccessible site as a whole, my concern is with inactive buttons only and whether their colour contrast could be considered an accessibility fail. We're not serving up less content to colourblind users - there is messaging on the page to inform them of missing functionality - and to make disabled buttons more accessibly in contrast may mean that fully sighted users (which make up the majority) do not realise the option is disabled, therefore being a worse experience for more users.

comment Controlling movement direction in isometric view
@NathanRabe True. That's why FPS games have in-game options screen where you can flip with Y axis controls. Something similar should be added to this game too.

comment Controlling movement direction in isometric view
Yeah, maybe my wording is a bit clunky (and I went with Camel Case too for some crazy reason) but perhaps just "Use the cursor keys to move towards the mcguffin" would work too.

comment Help on placing controls
Can you elaborate a bit on this? It's a bit low on details - when you say 'controls' I assume you mean the Insert / Clear buttons? and what is it about them that you don't think is working?

You make a good point though. Just because something officially / legally ticks all the boxes, that isn't going to help those individuals who get into difficulty as a result of a design decision. They won't care the site is 100% AA compliant if they can't do something they wanted to.

Ah bingo! Not sure how I missed that in the WCAG guidelines, but it does support my opinion, so I'm happy!

comment Do disabled buttons still need to be contrast compliant for accessibility?
@RogerAttrill there is still messaging on the screen to give feedback to users of this. I am concerned that we may end up with a button that isn't so clearly disabled just so that it passes DDA / WCAG, but to the detriment of the majority of users (sighted ones) who will be less able to clearly tell that the feature is unavailable.
