Try aria-label (or aria-labelledby if there’s an ID you can point to).

As I understand it, an aria-label (or aria-labelledby) value gives an item an “accessible name” in much the same way an alt attribute does on images.

I’m also reading (and enjoying) A Memory Called Empire.

Other recent good SF reads: Lagoon by Nnedi Okorafor, Rosewater by Tade Thompson (both first contact/alien invasion books set in Nigeria).

Well, this is a weird example but look at the output of this XML https://thesession.org/tunes/new?format=xml with and without the extension enabled. With the extension, you can see the JavaScript dumped to the screen.

We fundamentally disagree. Based on the architecture of most framework-driven bloated single page apps today, the idea of separating concerns—much less progressive enhancement—isn’t even known about. This “gospel” had no disciples.

Replying to

The way I see it, the people encouraging progressive enhancement made almost zero impact. It wasn’t that the next generation misinterpreted the message; they never even got the message in the first place.

@FutureSyncConf Anonymous asks:

Great talk, Jeremy. Do you encounter push-back when using the term “Progressive Enhancement”?

It wouldn’t. I don’t understand what you’re asking. The issue is with the sites (the vast majority) that aren’t being added to the home screen—they’re the ones being hobbled by this 7 day deletion.
