When we are talking about adaptive design, we generally mean that the user interface adjusts itself to the screen size and orientation of a device. But what if your application could do more? What if it could react to changes in context conditions? Is it dark or blindingly sunny? Are you snuggling on a couch or crossing a desert in an off-roader. Are you in a hurry or chilling out? The context matters.
Elena Makarenko explains why context-related accessibility is a relevant topic for everyone, whatever your specific abilities may be, and how adaptive web components can help by enabling your application to change its appearance depending on external conditions. These custom controls are able to switch between several variants of their DOM structure depending on the current context state. Elena demonstrates how using just a few CSS context queries can take your user experience to a new level.
