The best mapping would be the Text control type. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ee671651(v=vs.85).aspx

However, I the inheritance model of the text role described in the draft makes me very uncomfortable. I think it will be used in error and remove a lot of semantics and behavior from children.

Added "Text control pattern" to the MSAA+UIA and UIA mappings for role="text":

Cynthia, is this okay?

Notes from AAPI meeting:

- Treat as role presentation.
- Edge doesn't have multiple Text patterns; the document is a single object (can think of this as a single Text patterns.
- no longer separate text patterns.
- Best to say "not mapped" in the mapping spec.
- Cynthia will look into this, and try to get back to us on the 15th.

draft text looks ok. I'm still not comfortable with the inheritance model.

Closing based on Cynthia's comment above.
