When I heard Microsoft was holding a Surface event today, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Would a new device be announced? Feature improvements to the existing line of Surface products? Who knew? There wasn’t a lot of info I could find online to give me any indication. I don’t have any Surface devices. But I’ve been tempted, especially after reading my friend Brad Colbow’s review of the Surface Pro 4 earlier this year.So at 10am this morning, I opened up a browser tab to watch the livestream.And within the first two minutes, I was captivated. Microsoft kicked off the event with a video focused on accessibility for users and developers. For anyone who’s been reading my blog posts for a while, you know that learning about and helping others to learn about accessibility is a top priority for me. Two hours later, when the Microsoft event finished, you would have seen a stunned look on my face. Followed by me trying to figure out if my annual budget for hardware had a spare $2,999.What Microsoft AnnouncedAfter the video was shown, I have to admit. I thought the event started out slowly. Presentations seemed a bit more scripted than I liked.But Microsoft presenters captured my attention when they announced the creative features in the next Windows 10 upgrade. And they kept my attention as device updates were announced. Along with one amazing new PC. Here’s what I learned.Windows 10 Creators UpdateExpected in spring 2017, the Windows 10 Creators Update is a free upgrade for all Windows 10 users. The update will include many new features and enhancements, including 3D capabilities in some of Microsoft’s most popular applications (the PowerPoint demo was impressive!).The Microsoft Paint application that has been around forever will be updated to Paint 3D. Microsoft Paint gets a huge 3D overhaul https://t.co/Aq9NvUJirK pic.twitter.com/COARYBeJh4— Gizmodo (@Gizmodo) October 26, 2016Paint 3D features include:Ability to create and manipulate 3D objectsScan a 3D object with a phoneMix 2D and 3D objectsPrint 3D objects and share to FacebookThe new My People feature, which will display next to the System Tray, allows you to quickly email, chat, or share with your closest friends. Without having to open up each application to send a message or attach a file. "Our goal is to make sharing on Windows as fast and easy as possible" #MicrosoftEvent pic.twitter.com/EJ6ObQr4ku— Trusted Reviews 📱💻 🎮 (@trustedreviews) October 26, 2016Surface Book i7Where the Microsoft Surface event got really interesting for me was when Panos Panay, Microsoft’s Corporate VP of Devices, took the stage to announce the new Surface Book i7. According to Panos, Surface Book has the highest satisfaction among all Windows or Mac products. #MicrosoftEvent— Deborah Edwards-Onoro (@redcrew) October 26, 2016And he did it in a way that built up the excitement for the product, showing a slick video of the updated laptop/tablet. Available for pre-order from Microsoft for $2,399, the new Surface Book is the most powerful Surface Book ever. With two times as much graphics, performance is doubled. (And their graphics are three times more than the highest end MacBook Pro 13). In addition, the new Surface Book has:Intel Core i7Larger battery with 16 hours of battery lifeRedesigned thermalsSecond fanThe new Surface Book i7 launches in November 2016. Surface StudioThis was the announcement everyone seemed to be waiting for. And boy did it exceed expectations! The new Surface Studio, an all-in-one computer, offers a stunningly thin 28-inch touchscreen display that turns your desk into a studio. The Surface Studio features a 1TB or 2TB drive, 8GB to 32GB of memory, Windows 10 Pro, with a Surface Pen, Surface Keyboard, and Surface Mouse. One of the most interesting features are the arms that hold the display in place; they’re designed with an articulating hinge for easy adjustment. Want to use the touchscreen upright? Sure thing. Prefer to draw on the touchscreen like a drafting table? Move the touchscreen to an angle you prefer (it looked like it can moved to about a 20 degree angle). Up close with the new surface studio in the showcase #microsoftevent pic.twitter.com/mtMZR11MIz— Mary Jo Foley (@maryjofoley) October 26, 2016While the Surface Studio works with pen or touch, what took my breath away was the new Surface Dial, a different kind of input device.The Surface Dial can work onscreen or offscreen, allowing you to use both hands in your designs. It’s a round-shaped object that reminds me of a hockey puck. When the Surface Dial is placed on the screen, it opens up a menu with different options (dependent on what application you’re using). The demo in the Surface Studio video showed a radial color palette menu that allowed the designer to draw a rainbow of colors across the screen. ConclusionToday’s Microsoft Surface event has me excited about Microsoft products! I can’t wait to get my hands on a Surface Studio to try it out, how about you? With today's #MicrosoftEvent, the company is now more innovative than Apple. Ponder that thought.

In his The Tipping Point: How Performance Decisions Make Accessibility Differences presentation at Inclusive Design 24 2019 this month, Henri Helvetica discussed the relationship between performance and inclusive design. A designer who works in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, he explained how performance metrics like Time To InteractiveWait time anti-patternsResource managementimpact inclusive design and how people are included. His 50-minute presentation is available on YouTube, currently with English captions.Short on time? Here are my quick takeaways. Web performance is framed as a user experience issue. What is the user’s perception of the site? How responsive is it? Did it load quickly?Similarly, accessibility is a performance issue. Can users complete tasks? What is their perception of the site? Are buttons large enough? Can users easily navigate the page? When web performance is slow, everyone suffers. Reducing latency (delay before data is transferred) is important.In 2016, mobile usage passed desktop usage. The fastest growth in users are users in emerging markets, users who are mobile-only and on mid-to low-end digital devices. Of the people in the world that have disabilities, 80 percent live in the global south/ emerging markets. ~ Nithya Sambasivan Network connections for people in emerging markets: 4G is 29 percent, 3G is 31 percent, 2G is 40 percent requires you consider speed while creating inclusive designs. As well as small screens, low memory, and cost of data.When it comes to performance, it’s all about resources. Images are the largest resource on a page as well as the number two issue for accessibility.How Performance is Improving User Experience and AccessibilityOver the years, YouTube has made significant performance improvements. One of the most important improvements is YouTube deploying adaptive bitrates, which are adjusted based on user’s network connection.The Network Information API: you can poll the network, figure what kind of network it is, whether it’s fast or slow, allowing you to make decisions on what resources to send to users. Think of traveling on a train, where the network is slower. Another solution for improving web performance: reduce number of images on your site. Time To Interactive (TTI) measures how long it takes a page to become interactive. Think of when a user selects a “Buy” button, but nothing happens. Code coverage: is there a method to manage the amount of code being sent to the user? Reduce the amount of code by filtering out objects you don’t need so information can reach assistive technologies.Web fonts impact performance, depending on how many you load. Keep in mind italic styles makes reading more difficult. (What’s New in Android Accessibility, Google I/O 2019: 40 minute video)People use old devices, old operating systems, old browsers. Create simple and inclusive designs, consider carefully whether you include experimental or more modern features.When something on the web doesn’t work well for people with no disabilities, that pain point is amplified for people with disabilities.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading...RelatedOctober 18, 2019: My Weekly Roundup of Web Design and Development NewsIn this week’s web design and development news roundup, you’ll learn how UX design can close the gaps between people, find six things to check accessibility on every website, discover why you want to provide a viable experience, not an identical experience for different browsers, and more.
