The last feature that I implemented was a button to mute all audio and video tags in a web page. This was simply done by having an on/off button similar to the table of content one. When it is turned on it adds a mute property to all audio and video tags. When it is turned off it unmutes them. The implementation targets only elements that are not initially muted. The idea behind that is that if you are for example in Facebook and only one video is play sound, so you turn of the mute button. If you turn it off and it unmutes all elements in the page this will be a problem. However, there is a small bug associated with that. If you have the button turned off and you reload the page it will function properly. If it is left on and you reload it will detect every video as initially unmuted, so it will mute it and add it to the array of elements to be unmuted later on. When the mute option is remove every video will start playing audio, even the ones that had a muted property initially. This can be see and tested in the UI demo ( I think that this bug is similar to the one with the blue color filter and the table of content heading. I think that when the infusion components are being build js detects that the elements are there, but it ignores their attributes.


Final thoughts

I had a great time working for Inclusive Design Institute. During this summer I had the opportunity to talk to new people and deepen my knowledge in the computer science field. The people that I worked with were amazing. They always helped me and made it easier for me to continue working and to implement new features. At first I did not understand how the infusion framework worked and had to study it for about 10 days until I started to get some understanding. Although I sometimes felt like I am write a little bit of unnecessary code, I realized that the infusion framework helps developers have a universal tool for building components. It is really systematized and it provides consistency for the code development and conventions.

Overall, this was a great experience and I would strong recommend the company to any of my friends if they have the opportunity to work for Inclusive Design Institute. I will continue to contribute to the project whenever I have time and if there is another project next year I will apply again.
