Status

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: The WAI-ARIA role presentation can be used to suppress the implicit native semantics of an element so that they are not mapped to the accessibility API. Appropriate use of role=presentation may prevent occurrences of this failure.

Tests

Change to:

For each element in the content:

Procedure

  1. Check if content is implemented in a way that should be ignored by assistive technology
  2. If step 1 is true, check that content has no semantic meaning
  3. If step 1 is false, check that the element's semantic meaning is apropriate for the content of the element.

Expected Results

  • If check #2 is false or check #3 is false then this failure condition applies
