Color, Candidates, and Type Screencast Demonstrations

These are some demonstrations of the Flash-based screencasts Kristen Flory and I are proposing we include as part of a chapter in the Watson 2008 book, based on our Watson presentation “Candidates, Color, and Type”. They illustrate the applets we use to manipulate web pages.

The demos are large (around 1-2 MB) Flash movies, so they take a while to load. Please be patient. I recommend viewing them with the browser in full-screen mode, so the entire window is visible. The first slide has a continue button; after that, they're all timed.

The Color Palette Demo shows the Palette function of the Color Coordinator script.

The Text and Font Demo shows the Scramble and Set-Fonts function of the Type Reset script.
