Hi Lisa, I think this was just sent to me— copying to Jutta and the list.

Sorry, I responded to the wrong email, the questions was about previewing the background image.

Jutta, because there are additional items (Tool and Our Data) that will be in the main navigation once we have content for those sections, I would recommend against making the navigation font larger to allow sufficient space for nav items and the space between them. It may look like there is space now, but there won’t be once the site is fully ready. If users do need larger text, they can zoom in. Let me know what you think.

Best,
Lisa

Hi Lisa,

It’s at https://wecount.netlify.com<https://wecount.netlify.com/>. Can you send me adjusted specs for the navigation bar font size based on Jutta’s comment?

Cheers,
Ned

   Can we reduce the following text:

   We Count, a project of the Inclusive Design Research Centre, funded by the Innovation Science and Economic Development (ISED program) will address barriers to participation and employment for persons with disabilities in the rapidly growing data economy. At the same time, the project will tackle bias and exclusion of persons with disabilities in data systems and ensure that these systems (including artificial intelligence, smart technologies, data-driven decision making and data analytics) recognize, understand and serve people with disabilities by creating innovative machine learning strategies and addressing data gaps.

   to:


   Addressing barriers to participation & employment for persons with disabilities in the rapidly growing data economy.
   Tackling bias & exclusion of persons with disabilities & small minorities in data systems.
   Creating equitable machine learning strategies that recognize, understand & serve people with disabilities.

   Also can the navigation bar text be larger?

   thanks
   Jutta
