Dalla quarta di copertina
Progressive enhancement is an approach to web development that aims to deliver the best possible experience to the widest possible audience, and simplifies coding and testing as well. Whether users are viewing your sites on an iPhone, the latest and greatest high-end system, or even hearing them on a screen-reader, their experience should be easy to understand and use, and as fully-featured and functional as possible.
Designing with Progressive Enhancement will show you how. It’s both a practical guide to understanding the principles and benefits of progressive enhancement, and a detailed exploration of examples that will teach you—whether you’re a designer or a developer—how, where, and when to implement the specific coding and scripting approaches that embody progressive enhancement.
In this book, you’ll learn:
- Why common coding approaches leave users behind, and how progressive enhancement is a more inclusive and accessible alternative
- How to analyze complex interface designs, see the underlying semantic HTML experience that will work everywhere, and layer on advanced enhancements safely
- A unique browser capabilities testing suite that helps deliver enhancements only to devices that can handle them
- How to factor in accessibility features like WAI-ARIA and keyboard support to ensure universal access
- Detailed techniques to transform semantic HTML into interactive components like sliders, tabs, tree controls, and charts, along with downloadable jQuery-based widgets to apply directly in your projects

The book is based on an approach to web design that is gaining acceptance and becoming important as more devices access the web.
You build your page starting from a solid markup foundation adding functionality at each stage of development always testing with accessibility in mind at each stage of the process. The authors cover some good stuff when confronted with what to do when you run into a problem of adding functionality at the cost of accessibility.
The authors write with a nice flowing prose and keep it interesting. They stress proper foundational markup, best practices for scripting and adding multimedia, and rely on newer standards whenever possible. The book offers some good code samples that you have to download from the site.
Filament Group's test suite, enhance.js, seems to have fallen by the wayside, perhaps in deference to the Modernizr test suite. That's ok--aside from chapter 6 (which explains enhance.js), you can swap Modernizr in for enhance and apply all the same progressive enhancement techniques.
Among other benefits, progressive enhancement goes beyond the letter of 508 law to satisfying the spirit of the rules.
Final verdict: this is a smart book, written by smart people, and a game-changer on the client-side.
