2Somewhat disappointing
By Ron Johnson
I'm struggling with understanding accessibility issues and how to get through the morass of resources on the web, so I decided to get this book. I hoped it would clarify and be, basically, my bible. The book basically lays out every single standard in plain english. I feel it falls short in the "How to" part. It's much more the 30,000 foot view than in the details and helpful. For example, 1.4.4. AA states that text should be resizable to 200% without loss of content or function. In order to remediate, the author suggests that I "add a feature that enables users to resize text (by CSS) based on three or four predetermined options." That's it. That's the 'how to'.

Another example - standard 1.4.1 - Use of Color. The standard basically states that color alone shouldn't be how a user will know to navigate or use your website. I need further help with that. For example, I'm dealing with a site that has links that are based on color, but when you rollover them they get an underline. Is this okay? I know underlining links is the gold standard, but what about on hover? The author spends a page basically restating not to solely use color, but doesn't go further. I still don't know the answer.

If you want a reasonably well written, but very high level rewrite of all the WCAG 2.0 standards, then this is for you. If you want to have any idea on specifically how to meet the standards, then you'll be disappointed.

Also, the book appears to be just this side of homemade. It's clearly not been done professionally by a publisher. That's not a deal breaker, just somewhat disappointing for the price to have such a thin book and have it made so cheaply. Looks like a print-on-demand kind of deal. Fine if the content was amazing.
