Web­site’s de­sign eas­ier to read

The Daily Herald - - OPINION - Ali­son W. Sing

I was pleas­antly sur­prise tonight when I opened Her­ald-Net’s newly re­for­mat­ted web­site. It is beau­ti­fully or­ga­nized and very easy to read. Re­cently, I had cataract surgery and for the first time in 62 of my 69 years, I am able to read your news­pa­per ar­ti­cles with­out wear­ing glasses or hav­ing to change the font size for my old eyes.

Ev­ery­thing pre­sented is clean and crisp. I know it took a lot of work to re­design your web­site. I am a long-time sub­scriber to your print sub­scrip­tion. My mother-in-law who is 97 reads it ev­ery day from front to back. I much pre­fer read­ing the head­lines and ac­cess­ing the ar­ti­cles of per­sonal in­ter­est.

I share many of the lo­cal ar­ti­cles with a friend in Kansas (for­mer Ed­monds Com­mu­nity Col­lege pres­i­dent, Jack Oharah) who con­tin­ues to take an in­ter­est in our lo­cal area with par­tic­u­lar in­ter­est in ed­u­ca­tional is­sues and the changes in our aero­space ac­tiv­i­ties.

I haven’t tried email­ing ar­ti­cles yet; but, will give it a try later.

Thanks for re­mov­ing all the old clut­ter (ads) from the new for­mat.

I be­lieve the Her­ald has set a new stan­dard for web­sites. Hope­fully, other news­pa­per out­lets will even­tu­ally fol­low suit.
