Web Directions Code ’20 session spotlight–Prefers Reduced Motion

Prefers Reduced Motion: Designing Safer Animation for Motion Sensitivities

Val Head, Senior Design Advocate, Adobe

It’s a common misconception that things like inclusive design and accessibility only come at the cost of design details like motion, but that doesn’t have to be the case. In this session we’ll take a closer look at the prefers-reduced-motion query and how we can use it to make sure even our most creative web animation work can be viewed safely by those with motion sensitivities.
