Hi everyone.

For tomorrow's design crit we will be talking about the on-off toggle for UI Options mobile redesign<https://wiki.fluidproject.org/download/attachments/66551842/Learner%20Options%20high%20contrast%20emphasize%20buttons%20toggle.pdf?api=v2>. Here are some of the issues:

1. How should the toggle be implemented? Is it a check-box, a button with an depressed state, or a set of 2 radio buttons?

2. Is it possibly confusing that the visual representation of the component does not match it's implementation? This is an issue for low-vision users with screen readers - the AT reads "check-box" but visually it may not look like one.

3. ... and other design and implementation issues that will astonish and amaze you!

The meeting will be from 10:00am to 11:30am ET and will be hosted in the Collaboration room at 205 Richmond Street West (IDRC offices) in Toronto, and online in the Fluid-Standup Vidyo room.
