ISSUE-674: Current references to Name and description computation must refer to host languages

Current references to Name and description computation must refer to host languages

State:
CLOSED
Product:
ARIA 1.1 Core Mapping Specification
Raised by:
Richard Schwerdtfeger
Opened on:
2014-08-25
Description:
The Name and Description computation referrals in the Core specification make it difficult to refer to the Core specification.

Areas that need to change:

- 5.1.2 Including Elements in the Accessibility Tree

<change>
Text equivalents for hidden referenced objects may still be used in the name and description calculation even when not included in the accessibility tree.
</change>
<to>
Text equivalents for hidden referenced objects may still be used in the name and description calculation, for the host language Accessibility API Mapping Specification, even when not included in the accessibility tree.
</to>

- 5.6.3.2 Reverse Relations
<change>
This feature is described in the Name and Description section.
</change>
<to>
This feature is described in the Name and Description section of the host language Accessibility API Mapping specification.
</to>

Note: we could be more specific and reference the HTML and SVG Accessibility API Mapping Specifications directly.

Related notes:

Now Section 5.6.1 is host language agnostic and a new accessible name and description document has been created which deals with host languages in the computation. This can now be closed.
