    Inaccessible banner

    Hi I have this banner on a website i work on, I'm terribly worried that it may cause fits for people with photo sensitive epilepsy, can some one (preferably someone without PSE) have a look and tell me if the client should change it. My ad manager has mentioned my worry to the client but they've said they're fine with it but i could do with some leverage if you guy out there could let me know your thoughts.

    Cheers

    So you think that your banner might harm someone with PSE and you want someone with PSE to look at it so you can find out. That doesn't sound right unless you are trying to cause harm.
    From the WCAG 1.0
    People with photosensitive epilepsy can have seizures triggered by flickering or flashing in the 4 to 59 flashes per second (Hertz) range with a peak sensitivity at 20 flashes per second as well as quick changes from dark to light (like strobe lights).

    Thanks for catching that. I'll go have some more caffeine now.
