The Objective​

The objective is to revamp the Horizons website with a clean, minimal design that prioritizes user-friendliness and effectively communicates our mission to the blind and visually impaired community. We aim to streamline content presentation, emphasizing the business side of our transcription services, which include both secured and non-secured transcriptions from English to Braille. The website will feature industry-specific contact forms for easy communication, catering to sectors such as Brochures & Flyers, Business Cards, Restaurant Menus, and more. Through collaboration between blind, visually impaired, disabled, and sighted individuals, our goal is to create a straightforward and professional online platform for Horizons.

The Work

We kicked off the website redesign process by creating rough sketches and low-fidelity mockups using Balsamiq Mockups. These initial designs were presented to the client for approval. Once approved, we delved into brainstorming the section functionalities and color schemes. Opting for greys and blacks to maintain a minimal look, we aimed to enhance user experience. A key challenge was incorporating a distinctive element to represent English and Braille. The solution emerged as a captivating text animation where English text gracefully transitions into Braille on each banner image. The client embraced this creative concept. Subsequently, we commenced building a responsive website, ensuring compliance with WCAG and AA accessibility standards throughout the development process.

Achieving an elegant text animation on scroll was a pivotal aspect of our website development for Horizons. Leveraging HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, we incorporated a captivating reveal effect for images with text. The HTML structure encapsulates sections, each housing a dual-content block. The accompanying CSS styles define the layout and aesthetics, utilizing gradients and transitions for smooth visual effects. The magic unfolds in the JavaScript section, where we utilized the GSAP library, specifically ScrollTrigger, to trigger the looping text animation upon scrolling into view. The script efficiently handles the dynamic application of classes, initiating the animation loop seamlessly. The keyframes in the CSS animate the text reveal, creating a visually engaging transition from English to Braille and back. This combination of HTML, CSS, and GSAP ensures a user-friendly and visually compelling experience, aligning perfectly with Horizons’ goal of accessibility and innovation.
