ISSUE-751: Step 2H: tooltip attribute


Step 2H: tooltip attribute

ARIA 1.1 Name Computation
Raised by:
Cynthia Shelly
Opened on:
Is the “tooltip attribute” for HTML is just @title, or is there a full tooltip computation? If there's a computation, where is it documented?

Is an aria-describedby pointing to a role=tooltip a tooltip attribute? It's already covered elsewhere in the computation.

Are there tooltip attributes in SVG?

Related notes:

Unfortunately, there is no normative requirement in browsers that they must render a tooltip. Consequently, it is undefined and we cannot answer this.
