ISSUE-651: Allow aria-invalid to specify more types of errors including custom errors

aria-invalid

Allow aria-invalid to specify more types of errors including custom errors

State:
CLOSED
Product:
ARIA 1.1
Raised by:
James Nurthen
Opened on:
2014-04-08
Description:
it would be very useful to allow aria-invalid to point to a custom error message. Generally people use aria-describedby to specify error messages associated with a field - but iOS and OSX don't read aria-describedby in a timely fashion.
It would be nice to allow aria-invalid to point to a message which could then be read urgently - or even introduce a new aria-errorid attribute which could point to an error message which a user agent MUST read out.
Errors are too important to leave to the vagaries of aria-describedby.
