Easy Flickr – just the photos pleaseFriday, June 13th, 2008 at 2:51 pm
Following the accessibility hack of YouTube I thought the same could be done for Flickr, and here it is:
Update: It seems there is some confusion as to how this interface works. The main photo is linked to flickr.com (as per API guidelines) and you can navigate up to 20 results by clicking the lower thumbnail to go forward and the upper one to go backward in the results list. This also works with a keyboard and in JAWS
but I need to make it more obvious with a hover state and some labels for screen readers.
If you want to host the interface yourself, you need a server with PHP and cURL, but that’s it. Simply unpack the zip file and change the look and feel by changing the style sheet.
