You Make My Head Spin: Reducing Motion on the Web (Audio Only)

April 16, 2021
Some people suffer physically when they encounter something like parallax scrolling or horizontally scrolling text. It can cause them nausea, dizziness, or other symptoms that can last for hours. These people can turn the "reduce motion" settings ON from the system level. As a developer, you have tools to respect that setting.

In this talk, Eevis discusses why motion can trigger the symptoms mentioned above and what kind of animations can be problematic (this can be surprising for some!). She also shows you how to respect the user’s settings with the prefers-reduced-motion media feature.
