Review of Diigo WebSlides

Diigo WebSlides Reviewed 10 Aug 2009 · Average score 71%


Slide shows move through automatically once the play button is reached. if you tab into the websites it is hard to tab out to the player. However for sighted viewers it is helpful to have the list of slides on the top. The tags and descriptions depend on the publisher but these could be useful. Users can add an audio stream to describe the websites as they are shown. It is felt that the contrast levels of the player's buttons could be better and text a little larger although it all zooms well including the link list.
