aria-roledescription restrictions

Mappings for empty aria-roledescription and when the element has no implicit nor explicit ARIA role

State:
CLOSED
Product:
ARIA 1.1 Core Mapping Specification
Raised by:
Richard Schwerdtfeger
Opened on:
2016-09-26
Description:
From the ARIA spec for aria-roledescription:

"User agents MUST NOT expose the aria-roledescription property if any of the following conditions exist:

1. The element to which aria-roledescription is applied does not have a valid WAI-ARIA role or does not have an implicit WAI-ARIA role semantic.
2. The value of aria-roledescription is empty or contains only whitespace characters."

The Core mappings should include a specification how to handle the above two special cases.

(Likely: "no mapping").
