Slideshows & Scrolling Text

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I would like to create a slideshow of photos

while text is scrolling on the page simultaneously.

Would this cause any issues/bugs?

Although I am eager to learn from my mistakes...this is for a client,

so I don't want to screw up! :unsure:

 

Thanks!

Not quite like the example on the demo of the link you provided, but I haven't looked through

it thoroughly.

I'm hoping for a fade in and out transition of photos.

I will be importing a slideshow from a media program into my code...if that makes sense?

Yes, exactly the text will be scrolling separately from the slideshow.

You should really re-consider scrolling text. The W3C rejected Mozilla's scrolling text back in the 80's for the simple reason it is not user friendly. We all read at different speeds, include those with cognitive disorders who cannot understand faster text, Dyslexics who will have a devil of a time reading it. People who do not have English as a first language, they will all have issues if you have it at to fast a scroll and "Fast" can be different speeds for different people. Then there are the fast readers or those who skip words to read faster will find other text speeds to slow...

 

Remember, you are creating a web site for others to use, so what you consider slow may still be to fast for sum. It really is not worth alienating users due to scrolling they can not read as it is to fast or to slow to read and boring for fast readers.

I'm really glad I posted this, as I was afraid of scrolling text posing a problem.

The text is just the client's first and last name scrolling only on the first page.

He is a fashion director and so the first page will be like a magazine cover.

His first name in very large transparent font scrolling in from the left and his last name

in very large font scrolling in from the right...at a moderate speed...then stopping in the middle.

His first and last name only contain four

letters. Will this still not be user friendly?

His clients will be business owners and fashion agencies mostly.

 

Cheers!
