ISSUE-1051: Use object property "placeholder-text" for MSAA+IA2 mapping of aria-placeholder

aria-placeholder mappings for IA2

Use object property "placeholder-text" for MSAA+IA2 mapping of aria-placeholder

State:
CLOSED
Product:
ARIA 1.1 Core Mapping Specification
Raised by:
Joseph Scheuhammer
Opened on:
2016-10-21
Description:
Joanie noted in FF bugzilla that the object attribute that ATK/AT-SPI uses for placeholders is "placeholder-text" and has been for a while. She would like to keep it that way for the aria-placeholder mapping:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1303429

Alex has confirmed this with James Teh in terms of the name of the object attribute for IA2 on the IA2 lists:

Recommend updating the MSAA+IA2 mapping to "placeholder-text" instead of the current "placeholder" property:
