Media Types
User agents are categorized by their features, or the features of the
device they're running on, into one of several media types. In some cases,
such as a desktop browser with a print preview feature, the user agent
can support multiple media types; however, only one type will be active
at any given time.
List of Media Types
all : Intended for all devices
braille : Intended for Braille tactile feedback devices
embossed : Intended for paged Braille printers
handheld : Intended for small-screen handheld devices
print : Intended for paged, printed media (or print preview)
projection : Intended for projected media
screen : Intended for viewing on desktop and laptop screens
speech : Intended for screen readers
tty : Intended for teletypewriters, terminals, or other devices with
a fixed-character grid
tv : Intended for television-based devices with lower resolution
and limited scrollability compared to screen devices
Media queries: Intended for a selection of media via expressions that
describe the features of the device introduced in CSS3
In practice, your typical web project will have styles targeting the media
types all , screen , print , and often handheld , while the other types will
be left to manage with the styling defined in the all type or will be left
to the default appearance.
