See F43: Failure of Success Criterion 1.3.1 due to using structural markup in a way that does not represent relationships in the content for the current version of this failure.

Description

Add the note:

Note: Though an element's semantic meaning is generally exposed to AT, the WAI-ARIA presentation role can be used to suppress the native semantics of an element so that they are not mapped to the accessibility API. Setting an element's role to "presentation" may avoid this failure by hiding that element's semantics from the user.

Tests

Change to:

For each element in the content:

Procedure

  1. Check that the element's semantic meaning is exposed to assistive technology and appropriate for the content of the element.

Expected Results

  • If check #1 is false then this failure condition applies
