comment Creating “visual blocks”
Accessible for people who cannot use the mouse or see the screen. Drag and drop interfaces, in my experience, are difficult to make accessible. However, the typing/autosuggestion will help.

comment What are good resources for testing UI design for color-blind users?
When designing with color blindness in mind, one needs to think about the contrast between colors. A combination of red and green can be accessible as long as the contrast between the two is enough. Conversion to grayscale can help in determining contrast.

comment Is Microsoft's Ribbon UI really that great, from a usability perspective?
Being able to discover new functionality is great, except I couldn't find the functionality I commonly used. The old menu structure, from the previous version, was restructured and a new interface was introduced. A better implementation would have been to restructure the menus in one version, then introduce the Ribbon in the next. Or, introduce the Ribbon with the old menu structure, then restructure the functionality in the next version.
