I scanned over it and it didn't interest me right away, but when I closed it
out I got questioning myself, what were these peoples lifes like as children? I
went back and yes, childhood was discussed, it seems they internalize it for
fear of ridicule, and during puberty for some reason can loose the ability.

So in the end I found it to be rather good, I learned something new.

Technical Remarks:

Easy to follow.

I spent about 30 minutes reading the information provided. It is a good read
but lacks scientific backup. For someone with little knowledge of this topic
the web-site covers the bases.

I spent about a half an hour looking around this site. I have never heard of
synesthesia before. I think I would go crazy if I had to live with a condition
like this. This site is interesting though. In a way I question whether I
believe that there really is a condition like this.

Technical Remarks:

It is really easy to find your way around this site.

This site I had read through for about an hour or so. I found the actual
personal stories very interesting. I feel the quality of this site was very
clear, and to the point. I feel if anyone that did not know about synesthesia
they will learn very much about it from this. This material is very easy to
obtain, and reach a level of understanding.

Technical Remarks:

I felt this site had no problems of difficulty getting into the web site. I
think the technicality of the site could be of a child. This site is very
straight forward, and interesting.

Site has no pedagogical merit because it provides no references. This omission
is crucial because the condition does not appear to have any scientific merit.
The obvious question of measurement (how does anyone concvince someone else
they have the condition?) is never even discussed. Overall, I am highly
skeptical that such a condition exists. Statements such as "I love the colours
of my first name, they're quite fun" do not give me any confidence in the
validity of the material.
