Welcome to Myndex
A Focused Research Projects (FRP) Organization.
What is a "Focused Research Project"? Certainly all research is focused — but here "focused" refers to our unique, agile methodologies for evaluating project scope and entry points, along with proprietary techniques for mind-grouping, where we leverage focus-group potential by employing cognitive stimulation in guided brainstorming sessions. Our white-paper details the advantages of our technologies.
Experimental Site Notice
This is not a production site. Some pages may have unusual formatting or colors as part of a series of live experiments in visual perception of self illuminated displays. If you have any problems reading any pages, or if you find any are particularly easy to read, we'd love to hear about it. Please discuss at the SAPC/APCA GitHub repo discussions tab
- We are currently researching accessibility technologies and toward the goals of readability of web based content and a better more accessible user experience for all.
- Advanced Contrast Prediction (SAPC/ACPA) See our beta release of the SAPC testing tool for evaluating color pairs and font weight, part of useful emerging standards in web content accessibility.
- Color Vision Deficiency (CVD) testing tool for examining designs under CVD conditions, part of useful emerging standards in web content accessibility.
- We have several upcoming studies under development — stay tuned here for future announcements. Some of the current experimental results and pre-prints are viewable here.
