Hello Product Hunt! A few months ago I built Epilepsy Blocker, a tool that allows people with photosensitive epilepsy to browse the web safely. It works like an AdBlocker, and it automatically blocks GIFs and small videos that may trigger a seizure. About two weeks ago, I had an idea! Could this tool be useful for designers? I went to Reddit and asked and surely, people loved the idea of a small plugin that would help you design more accessibly. So, two weeks later, here I am :) I have tweeted about EVERYTHING, and the whole process, from idea, to initial post on Reddit, to MVP, to launching today, can be found in a single Twitter thread (https://twitter.com/alexsideris_...) I will be building even more products, my goal is one per week, so if you are interested you can follow along while I am building them in the open. I'll be here all day to answer any questions you may have. Much love, Alex EDIT: So, something funny happened today, a double launch, since both DuckDuckSometimes and Epilepsy UX are on the front page side by side. I launched DuckDuckSometimes yesterday, but it got a spot on today's section again 🚀
