ISSUE-109: change ARIA section title and add extra text about use of ARIA

aria-section-title

change ARIA section title and add extra text about use of ARIA

State:
CLOSED
Product:
pre-LC1 HTML 5 spec
Raised by:
Steve Faulkner
Opened on:
2010-04-13
Description:
The HTML5 spec currently refers to ARIA as
"Annotations for assistive technology products (ARIA)"

This is innacurate. While the primary prupose at this time is to provide
accessibility information to assistive technology, it is not intended as its
exclusive purpose, as the WAI-ARIA spec states:

"The WAI-ARIA specification neither requires or forbids user agents from
enhancing native presentation and interaction behaviors on the basis of
WAI-ARIA markup. Even mainstream user agents might choose to expose metadata or
navigational features directly or via user-installed extensions; for example,
exposing required form fields or landmark navigation. User agents are
encouraged to maximize their usefulness to users, including users without
disabilities."
http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/aria/introduction

Request a change to the title of the ARIA section so the scope of ARIA is not
so narrowly defined in HTML5
(http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/embedded-content-0.html#annotations-for-assistive-technology-products-aria)
and inlcude text simliar to the above to provide such guidance to all user
agents.
