Topic line icons

Post by Ctrl+N » Fri Mar 26, 2010 3:20 am

Is there a legend somewhere that explains what the icons to the left of the topics in the list mean?

That's nice, but not as accessible as it should be. For example, people with motion disorders (like Parkinson's) may not be able to keep the cursor steady enough, especially over small icons like the "new post" mini-icons that link to that post.

A legend (or link to a legend) and/or a topic in the FAQs would probably be a good idea. It would of course have to dispaly the icons based on the user's current style.

Also, do you expect them to be able to click the topic link if they have parkinsons?

By pressing the tab key.

As for the topic icons, I do agree with Pony99CA, there should be some sort of legend at the bottom, like in subSilver2.

Oh, yeah I forgot about that. Also, yes, a legend should be able to be turned on in the ACP
