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.
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.
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.
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.
