ISSUE-677: ATK/AT-SPI mapping of role="presentation" to ROLE_PANEL is incorrect.

ATK/AT-SPI mapping of role="presentation"

ATK/AT-SPI mapping of role="presentation" to ROLE_PANEL is incorrect.

State:
CLOSED
Product:
ARIA 1.1 Core Mapping Specification
Raised by:
Joanmarie Diggs
Opened on:
2014-09-23
Description:
The Core-AAM states that role="presentation" is mapped to ROLE_PANEL in the case of ATK/AT-SPI.

This should be ROLE_SECTION.

Related notes:

The good news is that this seems to have been fixed in February, with the mapping correctly showing ROLE_SECTION.

The bad news is that the commit with the fix is one [1] in which a BUNCH of stuff was changed as an apparent consequence of branch merging. But before that commit [2], the mapping is panel; in that commit [3], the mapping is section. So while it's not immediately clear why the fix was made, it was made.

Setting the state to CLOSED -- and tweaking the title a tad to reflect the nature of the issue.
