So one of the accessibility issues recently discussed in Vividcon fandom was warnings on vids, and one item brought up as needing warnings for accessibility was epileptic seizure triggers, such as flashing lights and microcuts. I haven't been able to get a good answer for this from the googles, so I was wondering, does anyone here know (or know were to look for resources) what frequencies of flashing and/or shortness of clips are likely to be problems for viewers with epilepsy?

Thanks.

"The frequency or speed of flashing light that is most likely to cause seizures varies from person to person. Generally, flashing lights most likely to trigger seizures are between the frequency of 5 to 30 flashes per second (Hertz)." From The Epilepsy Foundation.

I hope that's helpful! :)
