F43: Failure of Success Criterion 1.3.1 due to using structural markup in a way that does not represent relationships in the content
From WCAG WG
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.
- Task Force Review: Techniques Task Force: ARIA techniques for 20 June 2013
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.
For each element in the content:
- If the element is implemented in a way that its semantics should be ignored by assistive technology, check that the element has no semantic meaning, the element is redundant, or the element is strictly decorative.
- Check that the element's semantic meaning is appropriate for the content of the element.
- If check #1 and check #2 are false then this failure condition applies
