ISSUE-603: Need an attr to indicate element activation triggers audio, video, etc.

aria-triggers? aria-initiates?

Need an attr to indicate element activation triggers audio, video, etc.

State:
CLOSED
Product:
ARIA 2.0
Raised by:
James Craig
Opened on:
2013-08-14
Description:
We need a way to indicate that element activation (e.g. pressing a button) initiates or triggers some media like audio or video. This will allow screen readers, for example, to know to suppress speech confirmation of a press, so that they don't speak over the beginning of a video, music file, captcha, timer, or other media resource.

Either binary:
aria-startsmedia="[true | false]"

Or more specific:
aria-initiates="[audio | video | none]"

I'm not particular to any specific attribute name, but "triggers", "startsmedia", and "initiates" may be appropriate.

Note: On iOS, the binary version would be equivalent to UIAccessibilityTraitPlaysSound.
