ISSUE-541: Text Alt Comp too specific to ARIA attributes (aria-valuetext and aria-valuenow)

Text Alt Comp too specific to ARIA attributes (aria-valuetext and aria-valuenow)

State:

ARIA 1.1 Core Mapping Specification

Description:
http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/aria/complete#tac_embed_range

This section of the name computation is too limiting to aria-specific attrs, such that it does not accurately cover native elements like <input type="range" value="5">.

If the embedded control is a range (e.g., a spinbutton or slider), use the value of the aria-valuetext attribute if available, or otherwise the value of the aria-valuenow attribute.

It should probably say this instead:

If the embedded control is a range (e.g., a spinbutton or slider), use the text value if defined (e.g. aria-valuetext), or otherwise the value of the control (e.g., aria-valuenow, or host language value attribute).

Related notes:

I agree.

Also, with the new approach where the TAC has a core section, plus native host langauge sections, the lingo, "...or host language value attribute", can be used in the core.

Actually, the new separate doc already uses this language. Likely part of my attempts to "neutralize" the algorithm
